It’s no secret that I have a serious slug crush on nudibranchs. So for Flashback Thursday, I thought I would just share some of my favorite nudibranch images.
The cryptic nudibranchs are the most interesting to me. I love the translucence of this one. For the full article see “Cryptic, A Nudiphile Episode“
California has its share of beautiful nudibranchs. This Hermissendra crassicornis was just a tiny juvenile about half an inch long.
Here is an adult Hermissendra crassicornis: (See “Are you a Nudiphile?”)
My all-time favorite is Placida cremoniana, a nudibranch I discovered in Southern California last year, which has since disappeared from California waters. (See “Love Affair, A Nudiphile Episode.” And also “Slug Bug! Another Nudiphile Episode “)
Some of the prettiest nudis come from Anilao, Philippines. (See “Are you a Nudiphile 2?“)
