Felimida krohni (Vérany, 1846)
NUDIBRANCHIA
Felimida krohni (=Chromodoris krohni) is a small dorid nudibranch with a bluish-green base colour with diffused greenish discontinuous lines (3 main, 2 minor in between) and a yellow or yellow/orange sub-marginal band.

Oral tentacles: 2 in number, short, pale blue coloured.
Rhinophores: Pale blue-green with blue tips, lamellate, retractile.
Gills: Present, unipinnate, pale blue near base but with darker tips.
Foot: Pale blue with white to green lines or spots particularly at the posterior edge.

Size range: 11-20mm. Uncommon.

Specific characteristics: This species is easy to distinguish from related species by its colouration; however it may be superficially confused with F. britoi which has yellow lines and violet colour, or with villafranca which has white and yellow disconnected lines and a bluish body colour.
