Species Account:

        Glossodoris sp. 2 is considered to be rare on Okinawa as I have collected only a single individual. This attractive animal was found on a mixed live/dead stony coral reef, approximately 5m from the reef fore front. The animal is similar in appearance to Glossodoris atromarginata, but perhaps unique enough to be placed into a different species.
