Note: This specimen (foreground) found sub-tidally off Kings Beach boat ramp. It is feeding on a sponge in close
proximity to an easily identifiable Hypselodoris zephyra. The foreground specimen however has fewer lines and those lines
are three times the width of every other specimen of H. zephyra we have ever seen either in situ or other photographs.
