It seems many of us nudibranch lovers went to the Philippines recently :)

I'm pleased to announce that I even managed to convert a few (former) non-branchophiles who attended our trip!

Kimi, your Phils' nudis are most interesting.
Your nembrotha rutilans "nudi1" is very nice, I think I have never seen your hypselodoris "nudi14" and struggled unsucessfully in Anilao to find a Ceratosoma sinuatum like "nudi22" in your other post
Where was that taken in the Phils? (I am going back in March, would be nice to know the Nudi laden areas)

Thanks Luko, Nudi14 and nudi22 are taken in Anilao. One guest asked diveguide if Nudi22 can be found in Anilao. Next day we went to look for it and guide found it in few minutes. Your `Dragon` nudi looks awesome :)

Speaking of Corals, the Xenia corals, which Kimi666's latest Nudi #4 mimics, really blew my mind diving off the Philippines.

These Xenia soft corals covered the tops of the walls at Baliscasag Island. Thousands of em opening and closing like grasping hands.

I just don't log dives
Here is yet another Lettuce Sea Slug from Curacao. This one was shot on a night dive. Are some Nudibranchs nocturnal?
To keep a short answer short.. yes
