Noumea crocea

Malida Alcazar Noumea Crocea - Anilao, Philippines Olympus XZ-1

Ron Silver Diversidoris crocea

Iris Dielhenn I LIKE your pic, Malida!

Malida Alcazar Thanks Ron Silver, Iris Dielhenn :)

Sonja Ooms Hi, Malida, I think it is a noumea lava (yellow noumea) as it has a red/orange marginal band instead of the white one.

Malida Alcazar Hi Sonja, thanks for the info ;)

Scubashooters Dot Net Very nice Malida!!!

Malida Alcazar Thanks Scubashooters :)

Bernard Maglana

Ashley Missen Nice Shot - where did you find him

Gary Cobb This is Noumea crocea Rudman, 1986 was it about 10 mm long?

Gary Cobb Ash be careful the little nudibranch is both he and she!

Bernard Maglana Your right about 10 MM, if its both male and female does it mean it can reproduce by itself?

Gary Cobb Not with itself! Nudibranchs are Hermaphrodite - Bisexual; an individual possessing functional male and female reproductive organs and capable of producing both sperm and eggs.

Deb Aston Noumea crocea, first time I have found this beautiful branch. Mudjimba Is, Sunshine Coast (permit from Gary required to dive here)! Only joking!

Ken Thongpila Wow Beautiful shot and great details Deb Aston :-) Love to see this guy one day!

Pietro Cremone Noumea crocea, Puerto Galera, Philippines Canon 60D in Nauticam housing, Canon 100mm f2.8 USM Macro, 2 x INON Z-240 1/250 F32 ISO 200

Jack Bernstein Did you use an external diopter. Amazing magnification for 'only' a 100 mm although you get some additional functional magnification from the APS-C sensor.

Pietro Cremone Hi Jack, yes for this pic I used a Subsee +10 diopter, forgot to write down in the description. Thanks for remembering me! This is a pic without diopter..

Pietro Cremone https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150474053680140&set=a.10150360366430140.394747.728315139&type=1&theater

Jack Bernstein Thanks! We will be in Puerto Galera in February. Time to get the diopters ready!

Jack Bernstein For my information, any specific site or depth? We will be diving with the Atlantis resort.

Pietro Cremone This one was taken just in front of Atlantis, at Sabang Wrecks divesite.. the guys there are really kind and eagle-eyed on spotting the best critters around.

Alicia Mirabilis I agree with Pietro Cremone: all the guides at Atlantis are marvellous! And you'll find a lot of nice critters there ;) Enjoy!

Jack Bernstein Pierrot and Alicia, you are both too kind. Getting more excited about the upcoming trip!

Ken Thongpila Great details shot...

Ken Thongpila Just checking out beautiful photos in the past months... bring back to show new members :-)
