Doug Anderson Hypselodoris bennetti, Bare Island. Olympus E-520, Oly Zuiko 50mm macro, f7.1, 1/125

Alistair Merrifield Nice one - an oldie, but a goodie.

Kimberly M. Porter I love nudi's

Ken Thongpila That's great shot Doug :-) One thing I always learn from you is think about BG before shot as I need to improve with that more often.. And this shot is reminding me that again :-) Thank you...

Gary Cobb ...also endemic to Australia!

Diver Jay Must have been some good eatin under the ledge. From Shellharbour Bushrangers bay @ 4mtrs Some of the very common faces around there.

Gary Cobb Noyce, can you ID the critters?

Patrik Good The left and right ones are easy. I don't think we see the middle one often up here. Couldn't find it in the databases either (closest match was a Ceratosoma of some sort). What is it?

Kelly Shelley I'm pretty sure the middle one is Ceratosoma brevicaudatum hard to tell from this shot but I was with Jay when he took this.

Patrik Good You are probably right, Kelly. A pretty good colour and pattern match, cf. http://www.nudipixel.net/photo/00019781/

Ashley Missen You Have a Hypselodoris bennetti (blue one yellow border - middle one is a Ceratosoma brevicaudatum and the end one is a glosssodoris atromarginata - Cheers Ash -- Nice find to get them all in the one pic - it's like a family shot

Diver Jay Ah beaten to it :{ LOL :} I would love to know what they where all heading for???

Ashley Missen just a family meeting - it is christmas time after all - they do all belong to the same family

Diver Jay Not a great photo, was just taken by how clear the body is. Shark Island Southern sydney at 6 mtrs :}
