DescriptionDoto pinnatifida is one of the largest species of the genus Doto, large individuals reaching 30mm in length. It is characterised by black tipped tubercles on the sides of the body and on the cerata. Occasionally there are a few of these tubercles on the dorsum. The rhinophore sheaths have a series of black spots around the edges. The only other Doto species with tubercles on the body is Doto tuberculata, a smaller animal with tubercles arranged in irregular rows across the back, between the cerata.
