Hi Folks,

was going through some images after transferring to Lightroom catalog and found this image of a Nudibranch,
family Polyceridae.It may be a Thecacera pennigera that has no black spots only orange. My other wild guess
was a variation of Paliolla cooki. Any ideas?

Although from PNG, this critter is very similar:

Thanks Marli that looks on the money. Wish I had taken more shots of it now as mine is out of focus and in a retracted state.

Those Thecaceras seem to really get around must be the "wings". Posted Image

Cheers,
Jim.
