Angelo Mojetta Ciao Francesco, bella. Vorrei pubblicare un paio di foto di questa specie sulle mie pagine della rivista Natura. Mi scrivi al mio indirizzo? Grazie. Angelo

Francesco Pacienza Grazie, Angelo Mojetta. Ti ho mandato un'email.

Bert Stankowski Spaceship of Battle Star Galactica LOL

Bert Stankowski great foto

Francesco Pacienza Thank you, Bert Stankowski. Spaceship or space alien. :)

Bert Stankowski anyway, most underwater animals are (looks) from "another space", isn't it?

Francesco Pacienza It's true, Bert Stankowski.

Francesco Pacienza Thanks for all your LIKES. :)

Gianni Colucci bella

Francesco Pacienza Grazie, Gianni Colucci. :)

Blogie Robillo Is this Melibe viridis, maybe a juvenile? Or a different species altogether? Spotted it in less than 5m of water (Talikud Island, Davao, PHL). Measured about 5cm long.

Carl-Johan Nilsson Looks like a Melibe sp. Did it have the hood?

Blogie Robillo Yup, it did, Carl-Johan. In the photo, it's that rightmost thingie.

Blogie Robillo Melibe viridis. Dayang Beach. Depth 6.4m; length 12cm.

Blogie Robillo Melibe viridis (pls confirm), depth 13m, length 14cm, Dayang Beach dive site, 28 Apr 2012.

Blogie Robillo I have a video of this, and it shows the nudibranch catching a small fish in its huge fishbowl of a mouth! http://youtu.be/UmdJ22GZzUk

Matthias Wildermuth Thats insane. Never crossed my mind that a nudi could hunt fish crazy

Sylvie Omnès amazing and interesting !

Antonio Colacino La Maddalena Isle-Mediterranean sea-North Sardinia, during a night dive last septemr-Melibe viridis, first time seen in this area-Depht 3.5 m

Ron Silver The wonders of an oral veil :-D

Blogie Robillo Melibe viridis, right Ron? Saw one catch a shrimp with that oral veil!

Ron Silver Yes, made it to the Mediterranean thru the Suez Canal!

Antonio Colacino Picture taken during a night dive, the animal was feeding filterig the sand.

Ron Silver It is a lot of fun to watch this very odd nudi feed

Stuart Pearce Very good and interesting shot :)

Ernst Andres Beautiful :-) Grazie Antonio

Antonio Colacino Thanks to all of you :)

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Is this Melibe veridis? taken in Ambon Bay, found @17m, length about 200mm.

Bonar Sitohang I think so. Melibe viridis [Kelaart, 1858]. Lucky you!

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Thx for the ID bro :)

Bonar Sitohang I only check to www.nudipixel.net.

Blogie Robillo Yeah I think it's M. viridis. I have a video of this nudi capturing a shrimp with its oral veil. Check it out: http://www.scubadavao.com/2012/08/gotcha/

Roy Arthur David Lontoh that's awesome Blogie :)

Blogie Robillo It sure is, Roy. I was very lucky to have caught that on video!

Gary Cobb Correct ID Blogie!

Orietta Rivolta Melibe papillosa Philippi,1867 Lembeh - Indonesia

Orietta Rivolta The species is right?

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Great findings Orietta....great findings! :)

Orietta Rivolta Gary can you confirm this species?

Ken Thongpila Nice one Orietta Rivolta.. Love to see this one..

Gary Cobb I think this is Melibe viridis Kelaart, 1858. This species has cerata are flattened with cone-shaped pustules on them, and their apices are bluntly rounded.

Gary Cobb I am pretty sure Melibe papillosa is a synonym of M. pilosa, Pease, 1860

Orietta Rivolta Thanks Gary !
