Nudibranch? North Ari Atoll, Maldives
Posted 30 September 2012 - 05:06 AM
black, as long as a finger nail,
can be seen on sandy slope of Constance Halaveli Resort lagoon.
(I dove in North Ari Atoll for almost 1 year, I have never seen this species anywhere else)
What's the scientific name of this species??

While it certainly looks the same as Aglaja felis it would take specimen examination & possibly DNA analysis to confirm if the same species occurs in both the Maldives & the Caribbean. A simpler explanation is that its another all black aglajid species.
Are you working in Natural History Museum of Los Angels?
If you are interested, I can help you collect some samples and send them to LA.
