David Kipling Interesting nudi though, thanks for posting. [No idea as to species though!]

Chris Bergermann length abt 2-3 cm

Sarah Bowen At a very rough guess either a Bornella or a Dendronotus...

Chris Bergermann Maybe tritonia manicata . Deshayes 1853??

Nathalie Yonow possibly Limenandra sp, page 253 in The Book
