Reticulated Goniobranchus

Reticulated Goniobranchus (Goniobranchus reticulatus) is a much-discussed species, and many experts are still not in total agreement. It could be that some identified individuals are other or new species. In general G.reticulatus has a reddish-brown mantle and a white foot that is visible most of the time. If all sightings are the same species, then it occurs from Eastern Afirca to the Western Pacific.
