Two individuals (an adult, and a juvenile on the left) feeding on a small colony of branched soft coral (Cladiella sp.).

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1416
A most beautiful individual with more pink on the cerata than is usual for this species. The species is characterised by the large, flattened, and partially coiled cerata.
