Tambja morosa

(Bergh, 1877)


Christopher Thorn This Tambja morosa from Sand Island, Taiwan was found at about 10m, 40-50mm. I saw different individuals clinging to the same plant like growth on the same dive last week. It doesn't seem to be their usual food item, does it? Very grateful for any insights. Thanks for all the interesting posts!

Phil Trezise This nudi was photographed on the exHMAS Brisbane at 18m yesterday (18th May 2013). I have found an undescribed Tambja sp in the guide book but this animal does not seem quite the same. Any ideas on an ID?

Phil Trezise size was approx 40 mm

Deb Aston Tambja morosa?

Carola Hofmann What a beauty!

Sdiver M Gtlu

Patrik Good A tambja - maybe one you should have collected?

Patrik Good Although my guess: Tambja morosa

Reed Nescher I also think this is the "Blue" nudie that turned out to be the "Slug"? [img]https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/1175037_10201371695567081_681513266_n.jpg[/img]

Pamela Akervik Garrett Words are falling out of my ears. I think that is why I was in the third grade for so long. I wish I I could be a friend who lived in Florida. I could listen to you all day long and never be bored.
