Dear All, Anyone have an idea what this Chelidonura species may be?
Found at Edithburgh, South Australia in about 3 m of water.
Slug was about 25 mm long including tail.
Thanks!
Cheers,
Phil Mercurio

Hi Phil,

are you going through your South Aus images looking for gold in lieu of some diving? Posted Image

Could this be Chelidonura sandrana? Looks very close to the colour form found over in WA.

Hi Jim, Definitely looks similar.
There seems to be quite a variety in this species but think you are spot on.
Cheers,
Phil
