Gymnodoris sp. from Raja Ampat, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. More than simply “hitching a ride” on this scorpionfish, it is feeding on the dorsal fins.
 

Comment from Leslie Harris: The two curly structures look like the egg strings of a copepod which means the red & white thing is the copepod but it doesn't look like any I've ever seen. Very interesting!

Comment from the photographer: I found a different picture of this species. It was really small, and climbing on a scorpionfish. Maybe red curly thing is also a nudibranch?
