A very small juvenile individual.

Interesting tubercle on the front of the rhinophore stalks.

Nice to see this from the western Indian Ocean; I also have photographs from the Red Sea, dated Feb 2010.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #12032
Judging by the size of the rhinophores, this individual has cast off most of its cerata at one time and they are all regenerating.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #8851
This is an atypically pale coloured individual

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #4869
These 3 individuals are gathered on a nudibranch spawn coil (the shiny pieces are the tiny shells of the larvae inside their egg capsules), which they are devouring.
