Scott White Sogod Bay sth Leyte in 15mts

Lindz Warren Cadlinella ornatissima (Risbec, 1928). Probably quite a young one as the rhinophores are so long.

Scott White Thanks Lindz first time Ive seen this one and yes it was maybe 15mm

Peter Fiechter I made an other Pic on 02.05.2012 ath Abu Ramada Cave in the Red Sea in about 24 Meters Deep. I dont know the Name of this Animal.

Sven Kahlbrock Cadlinella ornatissima (Risbec, 1982), the collors are not true in the pic, you should use a flash or a torch for light, but nice find

Patrik Good My favourite at the moment (because I didn't expect to find these refreshing colours in that shape): Cadlinella ornatissima (Risbec, 1928).

Matthias Wildermuth Nice one.where did u spot it?

Patrik Good It is a nice one, isn't it. Found it on Old Woman Island - last week, 27/11/2011, about 25mm. Reminded me of a sorbet ice cream on that beautiful day where we were steaming from spotting so many different nudis.

Matthias Wildermuth Saw it only once south of sydney. A beautiful critter

João Pedro Silva Pure yolk.

Patrik Good it looks tiny.

João Pedro Silva That one was small. But the larger ones are not big either, only 12mm.

Patrik Good Nice, reminds me a bit of the Cadlinella ornatissima we are finding here.

João Pedro Silva Just because of the colour of this individual (this one was feeding on eggs of Lepadogaster lepadogaster) because anatomically they're very distinct (this is an aeolid). This shot may help to clarify: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jpsilva1971/7389773178/

Jürgen Pesch about 15 m deep , Mactan, Cebu, Philippines ,size about 2-3cm, love the white/rose pimples dots, looks like sugar candy !:)
