A pair of mating Chromodorididae Nudibranchs (Mexichromis mariei) on the rich ocean floor at the Tulamben Slopes dive site in Tulamben Bay in Bali, Indonesia.
The solid yellow band, combined with the raised purple tubercles are typical of this species. This is a very rare record of this species mating.
Tulamben Slopes is one of the premier muck diving sites in the world, featuring black sand slopes that are some of the richest in the world.
