About 2/3" long. Kudos to Marisa for this find!
Adult, about 1" long.
While photographing something else, I noticed two of these pugnacious nudibranchs encounter each other - both reared up and lunged at each other. The smaller hustled away before damage occurred.
Egg spiral, about 1" across.
Juvenile, about 1/2" long. Very short cerrata!
This poor nudibranch's face got chomped as well; interesting to see the normally-hidden oral tentacles though.
Juvenile, about 2/3" long.
With a piece of its favorite food, the yellow sponge that looks just like it.
With egg spirals. As the nudibranch moved away from the eggs, a small snail (Amphissa?) moved in. Maybe it ate some, note sure about this.
Does anyone know why there are air bubbles next to the eggs? They were not on the rest of the rock.
One of two today, both about 3/4" long.
The "racing stripe" version.
The "bald spot" version.
In second photo for comparision, D. albopunctata is on the left.
Ouch. Something chomped its face. In second photo for comparision, D. fulva is on the right.
An unusual find for this well-visited reef. Shell was about 8" across.
About 1/2" across, found on underside of rock. Beautiful lavender/pink/white markings with a dark lip on the opening.
Never noticed their green-striped bodies before. Will get a better photo on Tuesday!
