Dendronotus frondosus from Zeeland, Netherlands
 

Comment from the photographer: Found at Zeelandbrug in the Oosterschelde. 2009 was a good year for this well camouflaged front eolid. This nudibranch likes to eat Tubularia indivisa and Seacypres (Sertularia cupressina). When it eats Tubularis they grow larger.
