A pair of the chromodorididae nudibranch species Hypselodoris kanga on some wreckage on the house reef off the Exotic Beach Resort on the island of Malapascua in The Philippines.
These nudibranchs are possibly part of a larger family group of species and many other names have been associated with this species.
Hypselodoris kanga is one of a number of species with a bluish background colour, short dark blue lines and yellow or orange spots. Some specimens are very similar in colour to Hypselodoris infucata. One of the most distinctive external characters is the triangular gills, edged in blue with a series of yellow spots up the outer face.
