|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Chromodoris magnifica was first described in 1832 by Quoy and Gaimard and was not recorded again until the 1980's. It is found from Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines.|
There are many similar coloured chromodorids which Bill Rudman calls the "Chromodoris quadricolor colour group" of species characterised by black longitudinal lines, bluish backgrounds and orange borders. Chromodoris magnifica can be distinguished by the submarginal orange border.
It has an undescribed flatworm which mimics its color pattern.
