While this could equally be Doriprismatica atromarginata, we have separated it because of the black gills,
slightly darker background colour and white submarginal band to the mantle edge. These are features not seen in
the many specimens of the aforementioned species observed on every local reef dive here. The two species can only be
distinguished confidently by analysing the internal organs.
