Hypselodoris villafranca from Sesimbra, Portugal
 

Comment from the photographer: A very small Hypselodoris villafranca crawling alongside a larger flatworm (Prostheceraeus giesbrechtii) showing the similarity in colour and pattern.

This photo was not manipulated. The subjects were shot just as they were found. Of course I was extremely lucky because their relative positions were only maintained for a short moment (flatworms move a lot faster than nudibranchs).
