Chromodoris sp.8 Air Bajo I, Lembeh.<br />
Is a yet unnamed species that is already shown in the page 329 of the book Reef Creature Identification Tropical Pacific by Paul Humann and Ned Deloach. There is is described as follows:<br />
Size to 2 cm (1/4 in.) pale blue mantle with series of orange transverse bands that become dark towards ends; rhinophores and gill branches orange to pale yellow or purple. Known from Indonesia and Philippines.<br />
I wish some day it will get an official ID!<br />
