Tracey Howley Mark is making us all jealous I think in his little neck of the woods on the Penninsula!

Mark Farrer lol Tracey just letting everyone know how good Blairgowrie is even if the water temp at the moment is cough cough 14deg

Tracey Howley O gawd.. im in 5:5 all year with a skin underneath and even in 26 degrees... damn.. dry suit eh..

Mark Farrer hahahaha Im in a 7mm wetsuit with a long sleeve lavacore Geoffrey Van Damme and my self did a 165min dive on Saturday I did exit NUMB lol

Sue Brown My first dive in 15 years last October was in 16c at Julian Rocks. I did it in a 5mm and wasn't too cold. BUT now I think I'd freeze.

Sue Brown Have bought a 7mm semidry now and used it during winter up here. BUT am back into the 5mm now. Water was 22c yesterday. Come up here and join us Mark Farrer!!

Mark Farrer Last month I dive the Gold Coast Seaway 22Deg South West Rocks 20Deg and Nelson Bay 19Deg LOVED the WARM water.

Tracey Howley Sue.. I was frozen yesterday...

Ashley Missen Polycera hedgpethi - Blairgowrie Pier - Port Phillip Bay - Victoria - Australia Length 25mm. Depth 2m. Temp 18 Deg

Ashley Missen David - This is, in my opinion, Ash's best photo from our 135 min dive at Blairgowrie Pier this morning. As darness descends here in Melbourne we are still collating the statistics for Nudibase, but roughly we found 40 individuals belonging to 32 spp.

Ashley Missen Hi David AS you probably gathered the previous comment was from Richard Willan

Geoffrey Van Damme Blairgowrie polycera sp.

Ashley Missen Nice Find

Ashley Missen where did you find him on the pier

Geoffrey Van Damme Hi Ash ,there's actually quite a few of these showing up lately ,seen about 5 or 6 each dive over the last few dives in different areas ,at the end and along the second moring.

Mark Farrer I thought they were juvenile Polycera hedgpethi but the more i look at them im sure there not.

Brendan Oonk When I look at this pic, I see similiarity to a nudi we have over here: Palio nothus. Could this be some kind of Palio??

Gary Cobb I think this could be a dark colour-form of Polycera japonica Baba, 1949
