Aphelodoris berghi

This uncommon nudibranch is covered in pustules and is variable in colour and pattern. It is usually some variation of brown and blueish-grey, with light patches around the margin. The rhinophores are collared and both these and the gills are a dark brown in colour. This differs from the grey rhinophores and gills of the more common Aphelodoris lawsae, which also tends to be more orange in overall colouration.
