Gary Cobb I think this could be (without seeing the gills) Thordisa villosa

Ashley Missen I thought itight be a Doriopsilla peculiaris (Abraham, 1877)

Ashley Missen there are no lumpy bits on it

Gary Cobb ...furry bits really!

Ashley Missen there was some sand on it

Gary Cobb We can send the photo to Richard to verify...

Gary Cobb ...upon rethinking it could be Doriopsilla carneola

Mike Bartick sorry bob, thats not a scoop of lemon sorbet...=)...

Bob Whorton LOL: I had to go out and buy some; after I saw this pic I was salivating.

Gary Cobb After sending the photo to Richard he says to call it Doriopsilla sp.

Kati Burg We found this during a nightdive at Bonbon Beach, 3m - Romblon Island Phillippines.
