Terrific detail on the nudis (and sidegill), Chris. We don't usually see all the parts of Tritonia's rhinophores or mouthparts, and the genital opening on Polycera is seldom seen either. Janolus is beautiful, and I love the shot with both the Polycera adult and juvenile.

You got a D. gemela! It's hard to find those. Recently, I found one on the Landing Craft off PV, but when we returned the next day hoping to get a better shot, I saw only albopunctata.

But what I really enjoy about your photos are the substrates and associated invert life. The landscape is just as interesting as the nudis are, plus we can see clearly what the slug is feeding on.

Great stuff!
