Tambja sp. from Poor Knights, New Zealand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from the photographer: This nudibranc was seen at night only once, and i have worked at the knights for over a decade. It was sizeable at 8cm, and very distinct from the usual tambjas and roboastras of similar size. The branchii are quite distint from anything ive ever seen. Any ideas? Something new or something not new sporting new clothes? Please let me know, thank you.
