In my defense this was a relatively small slug. Well, small by SCUBA standards, so maybe 2 cm, which is quite large by CA tidepooling standards.

This was one of those times when David pointed into a dark hole, I gazed in for several seconds, saw nothing, but took a picture hoping I would capture whatever he had found.

Halgerda terramtuentis, to be exact, aka the Gold Lace Nudibranch, aka that slug I've wanted to see ever since I first saw a picture of it. Between dives David and Randy asked if there was anything in particular I wanted to see, to which I replied "Halgerda!" Several miniutes into our second dive David pointed one out. Amazing.

These were all over the place. For some reason I didn't notice any Ophiocoma pica, but I'm assuming they were there.

Not sure which species. Observed on the reef. Didn't get any better pics of the mouth.
