Dark, green dive today, but lots of new stuff to photograph at Golf Ball Reef. While Phil was excited about finding an uncommon nudi, I found a small frog shell with the snail. Usually, the frog shells that I find have become home to hermit crabs.

I had no idea that its eye and internal siphon would have...polka dots.

Doriopsilla fulva (probably not albopunctata)
