Gary Cobb A beautiful species! What was the size??

Tony Strazzari About 6 centimetres ... but sometimes see them up to 10cm.

Tony Strazzari At Cabbage Tree can be sure of seeing them most dives when you visit their area...

Gary Cobb So I have been told, cant wait to see one!

Jim Dodd Gary, Cherie and I are still waiting for you and Joey to come down here for some diving.

Nick Missenden On my hit list as well Gary. Jim can you dive there off your own boat?

Deb Aston Nembrotha rosannulata found at Cabbage Tree Island, NSW, 140mm, 11m depth.

Rob Maller Wow Deb...

Kati Burg We found this nuidbranch on Bonbon Beach (sorry - the photo is a little foggy) It's a Nembrotha. But which species?

Jun V Lao Nembrotha rosannulata

Kati Burg I am not sure... The dots look different - should be dark inside/color outside - but here it's the other way around.

Jun V Lao yes, was typing a questionmark at the end

Jim Dodd It looks like a Nembrotha rosannulata but I dont think it is. THe dots on Nembrotha rosannulata are usually round like donut icing (hence its common name Donut Nembrotha) with black dots in the middle. The gills are also pink. Here are some photos http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1326588093626.48369.1498646540&type=3

Jim Dodd Where is Bonbon Beach? As to my knowledge there are only 2 places where Nembrotha rosannulata is found. 1 is on a reef off Port Mcquarie NSW, Australia, which is 38m deep so n ot many people can get there to see it. The other is at Cabbage Tree Island off Port Stephens, NSW, Australia. Here it is found in 10 - 15m of water and we take divers here most weekends.

Kati Burg Bonbon Beach is a beach / dive site in Romblon Island, Philippines: http://bit.ly/M9wY96

Kati Burg I've seen this nudibranch only once.

Ashley Missen Best to just say at the moment it's a Nembrotha sp.
