Info

Doriopsilla areolata

Body and mantle range in colour from a translucent whitish cream to bright orange with a pattern of opaque white markings. The mantle is covered in low rounded tubercles. Sometimes these are surounded by a white ring, and sometimes the whole mantle is covered with a reticulate pattern of white lines. All variations can occur between these two colour extremes.
