Unidentified nudi (or two species of nudi?) from Tabulen, Bali. These are tiny, tiny creatures, basically just floating around in the water column.

Difficult to say. My best guess is a Rostanga or a Sclerodoris but it's probably not a good guess.... It really looks like a sponge-mimic so it's puzzling to see it perched on hydroids, unless there's sponge surrounding the hydroid's stalks.
