Yellow Nudibranch

17 January 2013 - 03:48 PM

Found in Manado Indonesia. Size estimated to be between 5mm to 10mm

I think it could be Trapania sp. based on what looks like the extrarhinophoral and extrabranchial appendages.

Nudibranch #2 from Manado, Indonesia

05 January 2013 - 02:17 PM

Another nudibranch from Manado, Indonesia. It's tiny about 10 to 15mm.

The body is whitish/transparent with brown reticulate markings and stumpy white rhinophores.
I'm not sure if those yellow/cream tubercles are egg sacs or digestive glands with contents its meal.

Nudibranch #1 from Manado, Indonesia

05 January 2013 - 02:00 PM

Here's a couple of shots of a nudibranch from Manado, Indonesia.

It's seems familiar to me, but I can't figure out what species or even genus this is.

There seems to be a golden patch on the notum just in front of the cerata. Maybe that patch is a caruncle (like in Janolus) or maybe it's actually the rhinophores, because the white tentacles with black markings seem more like oral tentacles than rhinophores.
Lastly, I've attached a large cropped photo of the head. Any ideas as to species?

A tiny nudibranch from Manado, Indonesia. Perhaps some type of Thorunna, but I'm not sure.

Coral Crab

I noticed a few of these coral crabs in Manado, Indonesia and thought that the colours and patterns would make it easy to identify the species. Here's a couple of examples. Please let me know if you can help indentify the species.
