Description

This large leafy slug is often seen on our shores. Despite this, I almost never get a good shot of it. But this splendid slug posed nicely for me!

Description

Sea slugs are hermaprodites. So each slug has both male and female reproductive organs. When two slugs meet, they fertilise one another.

The male organ is the white thing that emerges from the 'neck'!

Description from Wikipedia

Elysia ornata, commonly known as ornate elysia or ornate leaf slug, is a species of sea slug, a marine gastropod mollusk. This sea slug superficially resembles a nudibranch, yet it does not belong to that suborder of gastropods. Instead it is a member of the closely related clade Sacoglossa, the "sap-sucking" sea slugs.

No range data available.
