Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Bill Tewes of Dive St. Vincent has been looking for critters in St. Vincent for 25 years and stated that he had never seen this one before; he thought it was an unidentified nudibranch. I don't see it on this website.

It was about 1/2 inch in length and I took the pic on May 12, 2009.

I can send more pics from different angles.

Thanks.
