This adorable nudibranch or sea slug has a few names: Ring-spotted dorid, San Diego dorid, Leopard nudibranch or the Tar spot nudibranch( Diaulula sandiegensis). The grow to be just over 7 cm and typically munch on intertidal sponges. #nudibranchs #seaslugs #mollusca #ringspotteddorid #sandiegodorid #tarspotdorid #coolfinds

These marine aliens were all over the bay today. #nudabranch #seaslugs

A Grey Sea Slug (Aeolidia papillosa) I found years ago in a small rock pool in Wales. Rock Pooling is one of my favourite things to do when I get the chance and I was so excited to find my first Sea Slug.

Hypselodoris tryoni 💜
🎨 @francescaapage 📍Indonesia
Go check out this artists page! She does AMAZING work 😍 we ordered a custom print off her sale right now, can’t wait to see how it turns out!
Nudi Fun Fact: Sea slugs such as Hypselodoris tryoni, are known to exhibit trailing behaviour where up to four animals will follow one another very closely, often touching. It is not known what causes this behaviour.

Now I do realize the reason sea slugs are often called "harlequins of the sea". This is a close-up picture of the rhinophores of a Felimida luteorosea nudibranch, showing the delicate structures (lamellae) that form what is the main sensory organ of this group, it allows to smell for food and other nudibranchs for mating. #nuditeam #seaslugs #nudibranquis #nudibranquios #nudibranchs #lamevamar #marenostrumdotorg #diveisfun #divemakesmehappy #nodivenofun #costabrava #mediterrània #mediterráneo #mediterranean #uwphotography #fotosubmarina #buceo #scuba #scubadiving #submarinisme #submarinismo #fotografiasubmarina #uwphoto #macro #felimidaluteorosea #rhinophore #lamella

Tiger butterfly sea slug (Cyerce nigra), habitat - the island of Romblon. Island is famous among divers and underwater photographers as a place, where you can find a lot of unique crustaceans.

I chance upon this very special moment when two nudibranchs came close to each other an exhibited this expression of love right in front of me. When the Miamira sinuata nudibranch (Green nudi)was next to this Hyselodoris nudibranch(purplish nudi) it went into a convulsion and releases this white cloud right over it ! Was this a mating behaviour that occured right in front of my lens? Maybe not! I managed to capture and and freeze it anyway! #miamiranudibranch #hyselodorisnudibranch #nudibranchinheat #matingnudibranch #seaslugs #nudibranchs

Truth be told, I had to make two deep jumps to find the previously posted mantis shrimp. I got outsmarted by the stomapods on my first dive, but my conciliation prize was a winner: a pair of these Bertch’s Aeolid nudibranchs (8-9) on some algae at 95’. This is only the second time I’ve ever seen Flabellina bertschi at Anacapa Island, so I was stoked to witness them mating and laying eggs. Once they were done, I teased one onto the black-slate stage for some crisp, clean images. Thanks to the crew of @spectreboat for putting me in the right spot. Shot in @channelislands_park with @canonusa gear in @ikelite housing. #anacapaisland #anacapa #channelislandsnationalpark #nudibranch #nudibranchs #seaslug #seaslugs #flabellinabertschi #scubadiving #scuba #scubaphoto #underwaterphotography #underwater #underwaterpics #underwatermacro #underwatermacrophotography #underwaterphotographer #naturephotography #macrophotography #sealife #reeflife #ikelite #ikelitehousing #canon #blackslatenudistage

Ardeadoris symmetrica

Nudi Fun Fact: It is believed that only half the total number of nudibranch species has been discovered so far, despite this numbering an impressive 3,000 or so to date!

Four of these bad boys will run you about $1000. Chinese delicacy. #nopicallowed #seacucumber #seaslugs

A new name for an old species. Any experienced diver in the Spanish Costa Brava knows this little beauty. It received a proper name (Diaphorodoris alba) only very recently, after a genetic study performed by Dr. Giulia Furfaro and her colleagues in 2016. #nuditeam #seaslugs #nudibranquis #nudibranquios #nudibranchs #lamevamar #marenostrumdotorg #diveisfun #divemakesmehappy #nodivenofun #costabrava #mediterrània #mediterráneo #mediterranean #uwphotography #fotosubmarina #buceo #scuba #scubadiving #submarinisme #submarinismo #fotografiasubmarina #uwphoto #macro #diaphorodorisalba #giuliafurfaro #capdecervera #capdecerbere #frontera #border

Pteraeolidia ianthina 💜
📍Australia
📸 @nudiebranch
Nudi Fun Fact: Pteraeolidia ianthina, one of the most common aeolids found, is often called a "blue dragon" by Eastern Australian divers because of its close resemblance to a Chinese dragon. It is one of the most common aeolid nudibranchs found in Eastern Australia. It can inflict a painful sting to humans!

Video by @PaulNicklen // During our recent expedition up the BC Coast, we expected to encounter humpbacks, orcas, grizzlies, spirit bears. But it wasn't until we dove beneath the thin blue line into the magical waters of God's Pocket that we found the biggest and best surprise of the trip - a massive gathering of sea slugs. In these fall months, they congregate to mate. Since they can mainly only sense dark and light, they must emit pheromones to find each other. Aside from their somewhat alien appearance, these hooded nudibranchs are rather unusual, as they're simultaneous hermaphrodites, meaning they have both male and female reproductive organs in the right side of their body. They are also carnivorous, feeding on planktonic invertebrates and crustaceans, including different types of larvae. When hunting, adults will pull back their hood until they make contact with their prey, then quickly close it, creating a trap. Stay tuned for more footage from this expedition! #TurningTheTide

I found another beautiful shell in the wrack line yesterday ... this one also had no vacancy and was occupied by a slug 🐌... I sent this one back into the waves too so the gulls didn’t get it.. I really have to go out more after a Nor’easter comes through .. #ocean #atlanticocean #getoutside #gooutdoors #northshorema #oceanlife #seaslug #seaslugs #goforawalk #walkonthebeach #goexplore #adventureisoutthere #shell #shellsonthebeach #notempty #novacancy #massachusetts #exploreyourstate #thethingsisee #thisonelife
