Jeff Rosenfeld Hypselodoris krakatoa Gosliner & Johnson, 1999. Cool angle!

IkeBe Ph Thank you Jeff Rosenfeld! The nudi was actually munching on a sponge and probably noticed me shooting so posed :)

Roberto Erta Name? Tulamben - Bali - Indonesia

Ron Silver Do you have any other photos showing the dorsal surface?

Shane Siers Judging from the speckling and base of gills, looks like Hypselodoris krakatoa, but I agree with Ron, another angle would be better.

Shane Siers Beautiful shot, though!

Roy Arthur David Lontoh I am also having difficulty to ID this fella, looks like Hypselodoris for me tough..but not sure. Found @11m, length about 30mm. Padang Bai, Bali.

Antonello Nazareno ... a variation of Hypselodoris krakatoa ? ...

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Antonello Nazareno....m not so sure, since Hyp krakatoa has many white spots on its gills?

Jeff Rosenfeld Hypselodoris krakatoa is correct.

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Thank you Antonello Nazareno and Jeff Rosenfeld :)

Jason Jue Extremely small nudibranch. Any idea what this is?

Jeff Rosenfeld Without knowing the location, one thought that comes to mind is a juvenile Hypselodoris krakatoa.

Jason Jue Oh sorry. Was about 22 meters deep in Alona Beach, Panglao Island, Bohol, Philippines.

Gary Cobb I agree!

Jason Jue Thanks!

Gary Cobb Juveniles make IDing nearly impossible!

Gary Cobb You're welcome

Ashley Missen Nice find at that depth
