Malida Alcazar Nudi - Anilao, Philippines

Ron Silver Chromodoris willani

Cameron Easton Just beat me to it Ron

Stuart Pearce Beauty again :)

Ron Silver Malida, I saw a post from you recently that I can't comment on? It was a small whitish nudi perched in a hydroid. Cam suggested a Phyllodesmium as a possible ID. From the shape of the cerata, I would suggest Eubranchus sp.2.

Ernst Andres Very good macro again <3

Antonio Colacino Great shot :)

Cameron Easton See what you mean about the cerata Ron. Didn't fix on the picture of Eubranchus as it looked a bit dark, but I now see that's a dorsal view, while Malida's picture was a lateral view . So, happy to agree with your opinion.

Ron Silver :-D

Ryan Pearson Chromodoris dianae???

Blogie Robillo Looks like Chromodoris willani, but C. willani is supposed to have specked rhinophores & gills...

Erwin Koehler I guess Chromodoris annae Bergh, 1877, hard to tell from that angle, the small dark blue spots on sky blue are distinctive

Bob Whorton Mistaken identity - Ships in the night :o)

Gary Cobb Two different species that might have been mating! top is Chromodoris willani Rudman, 1982 and lower is Chromodoris boucheti Rudman, 1982 because of the black line on the inside of the gills. Similar species! C. willani has white species on the gills and rhinophores. NIce pic!

Bob Whorton Quite an unusual situation this, as three similar species (inc diannei) were grouped together around their common food sponge.

Gary Cobb They do that! What is so grand is being at the spot to witness it! Nudibranchs are are in time and space.

Ashley Missen Great pic - please don't forget to send the picture and the sighting info to data@nudibase.com so it can be added to the database - thanks Ash
