35mm length. Found in rocky intertidal. I'm posting several old photos (scanned from 35mm slides) of species of Doriopsilla so that they can be viewed by a colleague who is working on the taxonomy of the pacific coast members of the genus.

I was surprised to see this on the outside of my co-worker's office window two stories above the ground. I didn't realize that they could climb glass.
