Does anybody know what this creature is? I stumbled upon it as I was getting ready to exit the water yesterday at Blue Heron Blvd Bridge in Riviera Beach, Florida. It looks similar to an Atlantic Black Seahare in the Humann and Deloach Reef Creature Identification book but the coloration is different.


For some reason I cant' get my computer to attach thumbnails into this forum so here is a link to my photos from yesterday's diving. The "creature" of concern is in photos 2-5. Thanks!

Doug,
Great Sea Hare photos. It could be a color form of Aplysia Morio. If you can post a picture that can be copied, I will send it to a couple of scientists to try to get it identified for you.
