    I think you may have linked to the wrong file there Tjack, that looks more like Nembrotha kubaryana, sometimes the gills are not coloured.

    This is N. chamberlaini

    A pair of Risbecia pulchella from today's dive off Dibba Rock on the east coast of UAE. Came across two pairs in the usual "trailing" mode

    Thanks for the correction there Searcaigh, I had based my ID on the word of a fellow diver. I will have to go back to my dive log and correct it.

    I have been looking at Costa Rica for a dive adventure, the price is right. Conditions are variable but the Panamic region is rich in exotic sea life. I don't recall seeing many Nudibrachs there last time I dove Cano Island, but I was not really tuned in to Nudis at that point.

    Nice to see some Nudibranchs from Spain, the diving off Tarifa was thick with amazing Nudibranchs, I have a sneaking suspition that Spain might be a Nudi hot spot.

    I took a macro shot of a Sea Lemon, Diaulula nobiliis grazing last Saturday and love the skeleton shrimp yelling,"Stop!"

    It was only about an inch long.
