Elysia diomedea from Chamela, Mexico
Identification verified by Dave Behrens
 

Identification is verified by Dave Behrens, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from the photographer: I'd appreciate it if one of your experts could help me with a little dilema I'm having with this shot.
I had the idea that the reproductive organs are located on the right side of nudibranchs, one next to the other.
If is it so... then what is that tiny pink penis-like form, right behing the rinophore on the left side of the animal?
