Paradoris sp. #4
Maximum size:  about 11 mm.

Identification:  This is a dusky-gray species frosted with brown and flecked with white. The white flecks form three irregular clusters on each side of the notum. The branchia are located far to the rear and the anal papilla is dark brown or black. There are a few irregular, diffuse brown streaks on the notum while the rhinophores are flecked with brown and white. The diffuse steaks and dark anal papilla distinguish it from un. discodorid sp. #8.

Natural history:  Paradoris sp. #4 is known from only two animals found in rocky habitats.

Distribution:  Big Island and Maui.
