Vinicius Padula Babakina anadoni Ortea, 1979 12mm Cabo Frio, southeastern Brazil.

Vinicius Padula Although I still believe that the western Atlantic form may represent a different species due differences in coloration, mainly in the cerata.

João Pedro Silva Babakina anadoni

Carlos Fernández-Cid Ramos Obrigado Joao. Siempre estás ahí

João Pedro Silva This species still eludes me. It's rarely seen here.

John Sexton Is part of the body coloring due to lighting from the cam and strobe or is it this color when lit by a white/blue flashlight? Just being curious...

João Pedro Silva It's the animal's "real" color (when light by a white light). This tuesday I'm going to Cascais to a spot where this species was seen at least twice.

John Sexton hmmmm, sounds tempting but I will give this a pass. Dry suit neck seal died...

John Sexton Good luck

João Pedro Silva Thanks!

Carissa Shipman The colors are unreal. It reminds me of the glow in the dark stickers you can stick on your ceiling.

João Pedro Silva .oO(ceiling mounted aquarium, UV lights along the sides, nudibranchs known to fluoresce...)

John Sexton I see a redecorating spree in your future... :-)

Bernard Picton Jacques wants to build a house with an Aquarium open to the sky at the top and going right down through two stories. I've told him to prototype it in Minecraft first...

John Sexton Go to the Oceanarium in Lisbon to see your model...
