IkeBe Ph 3some 10mm nudis @ 65 ft Anilao, Batangas

Blogie Robillo Glossodoris rufomarginata, I believe.

Patrik Good Nice. 10mm is a bit small compared to the ones we are finding.

IkeBe Ph Thank you Patrik Good!

Gary Cobb Sorry to intrude...these animals look a lot longer than 10mm!

Sascha Hofmann 1. Western Side of Flinders Reef, Brisbane, Australia 2. 50-70mm My best guess is Glossodoris aff. averni, but that one doesn't have the colour on its back.

Deb Aston Glossodoris rufomarginata (Bergh, 1890)

Gary Cobb Correct!

Gary Cobb Sascha thank you for giving us the proper information!! We have found species quite a bit there!

Sascha Hofmann Sometimes its hard to figure out if it is a different species or just a colour variation. Especially if you don't know half the species that exist :)

Shane Siers Here's the first in what promises to be a long series of videos of nudibranchs and other sea slugs from the Philippines. Just a taste of the bizarre and vibrant biodiversity from some of the world's most endangered reefs and marine habitats... In this video, from Anilao and Puerto Galera: Tritonia sp., Dermatobranchus sp., Eubranchus sp., Sakuraeolis nungunoides, Hypeslodoris krakatoa, Ardeadoris averni, Atagema cf spongiosa, Halgerda dalanghita, Glossodoris rufomarginata, Ceratosoma gracillimum and Marionia sp. www.macronesia.net www.facebook.com/macronesia.net

Delos Reyes Eddie amazing shots

Shane Siers Thanks, Delos.

Shane Siers Thanks for the likes, friends.

Lindz Warren This looks like it would be great but I have a slow connection here. Any chance of a lower resolution version? :-)

Elly Jeurissen Awesome footage! Thanks for sharing, Shane. Looking forward to the next part(s) :-)

Shane Siers Lindz, my video host service has lower-res versions for slower connections, it is supposed to sense your speed and provide the right version. But at some point slow is too slow, nothing to be done about it on my end, I'm afraid. I hope you'll try again, maybe at a different time of day when fewer people are sharing your bandwidth.

Eric Fly Awesome vid man. You shoot the best. I miss the hunt.

Shane Siers We miss you, too, dude. I think Dave's having a hard time finding buddies...

Jim Anderson My Philippine Nudibranchs website is updated following our recent trip - 92 species added plus many additional images.

Patrik Good Nice work. Makes me to follow up on two of my IDs based on your Gastropteron sp. 2 and Hypselodoris sp. 2 pictures. There seem to be little differences between Gastropteron, Siphopteron and Sagaminopteron. At the moment I can't see why your Hypselodoris sp. 2 can not be a Hypselodoris obscura that we are finding in all sorts of texture and colour variations.

Erwin Koehler I will check the IDs if time permits... I think this one http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/phyllodesmium-crypticum-01.html is Phyllodesmium pinnatum Moore & Gosliner, 2009

Blogie Robillo Nice collection!

Blogie Robillo I do believe this one that you labeled Chromodoris sp. 22 is in fact Glossodoris rufomarginata: http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/chromodoris-sp22-01.html

Erwin Koehler I think this one http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/phyllodesmium-sp2-01.html is Phyllodesmium tuberculatum Moore & Gosliner, 2009

Blogie Robillo This one might not be H. tryoni (but I'm not sure): http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/Hypselodoris%20tryoni-03.html

Christopher Thorn Fantastic!

Jim Anderson Thanks folks - I've corrected and updated the site - please pass on any more mistakes!!

Erwin Koehler the Aegires villosus variant with the black tips is in IPN at page 144 Aegires sp. 4, I am not convinced that they are distinct species.

Erwin Koehler Comment from Dr. Richard C. Willan at NUDIPIXEL: "Atagema ornata and Atagema intecta both relate to the same species and we must use Atagema ornata (instead of Atagema intecta - which is more common in the literature) because it is the older name."

Erwin Koehler This specimen has 5 lobes http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/ceratosoma-trilobatum-01.html it is Ceratosoma tenue

Erwin Koehler This specimen http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/dermatobranchus-sp1-01.html looks like Dermatobranchus pustulosus van Hasselt, 1824

Erwin Koehler Nembrotha yonowae Goethel & Debelius, 1992 has a red margin of the foot similar to N. kubaryana Bergh, 1877, your specimens are undescribed, I guess there are several species with a black background color and red spots

Erwin Koehler Comment from Nathalie Yonow: Phyllidiopsis xishaensis is well known throughout the Indo-Pacific as Phyllidiopsis striata Bergh, 1889. This is a misnomer as Phyllidiopsis striata Bergh, 1889 is a valid species, in the genus Phyllidiella as Phyllidiella striata (Bergh, 1889) [Phyllidiopsis] and clearly different, more similar to Phyllidiella rosans.

Erwin Koehler this species http://www.nudibranch.org/Philippine%20Sea%20Slugs/html/nudibranchs/plocamopherus-imperialis-01.html looks like Plocamopherus ceylonicus (Kelaart, 1858)

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Is this Glossodoris rufomarginata? thank you :)

Sven Kahlbrock Where did you take that shot?

Roy Arthur David Lontoh In Amed - Bali, Indonesia, Sven...@25m clinging upside down by hard coral (I rotated the image)...

Roy Arthur David Lontoh its about 35-40mm

Sven Kahlbrock it looks a bit like G. dendrobranchia, but this is so far only known from Queensland.

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Thanks Sven....

Gary Cobb This is a dark colour form of Glossodoris rufomarginata

Roy Arthur David Lontoh Gary thank you :)

Gary Cobb You're welcome

Blogie Robillo Goniobranchus reticulatus (?). This poor critter is missing one of its rhinophores. Also, is that its anus sticking out beside the gills? Length abt 1.5cm; depth 11m.

Penn Dls I thought you got a yawning nudi. :)

Blogie Robillo hehehe :D

Blogie Robillo Orietta Rivolta - Gary recently posted a document here and it outlined taxonomic changes made to a number of dorid nudibranchs. Chromodoris reticulata is now Goniobranchus reticulatus. The reason I put (?) up there was because I thought maybe this was a completely different species because of that anal projection...

Patrik Good Your nudi looks is similar to the document that you are mentioning: it is lacking essential things and has some things too much. In the case of the document it's letters in species and genera names, with your nudi it's body parts :-) Thanks for uploading, great posts of yours, Blogie Robillo. Wonder what caused this abnomalities.

Blogie Robillo Patrik Good - I wonder too. The lack of one rhinophore is probably due to predation, but that tubular projection is really perplexing!

João Pedro Silva Did you check Bill Rudman's collection of malformations on SSF? I think it's just one of those odd cases. http://www.seaslugforum.net/showall/abnormal

João Pedro Silva There's a similar case on SSF with a Glossodoris rufomarginata: http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/1506
