Platydoris carolynae Mulliner & Sphon, 1974

Platydoris carolynae is a large, flattened leathery nudibranch with a distinctive pattern of irregular, merging black or brown markings on a cream background. The underside of the mantle is also cream with black or brown spotting, each spot made up of multiple fine cross-hatched lines. The rhinophores are tan-coloured with dark brown spots. Gills are translucent with dark brown or black specks.

Can be found in shallow water, subtidal, tide pools and shallow subtidal, associated with sponges.

Endemic to the Galapagos Islands.
