Hi,

I've just got back from a nice holiday in Marsa Alam. During my first dive there on a site called Erg Torfa I found this nudi on 5 meters depth. I've looked trough my books but I cannot find it anywhere. Could someone here please help me to identify this one. Both common and latin name would be appreciated.

Thanks

Peter

Closest that I can find is Flabellina arveloi. I think a message to Bill Rudman at the Slug Forum is in order, though, because of the location.

I knew I'd seen something like this before....I think it's a colour form of Cuthona sibogae.
If you look it up on the Sea Slug forum species list, you'll see a reference under the species to one mistaken as a Flabellina from the Red Sea that really looks like yours.
