Unknown invert from Pacific side of Costa Rica

16 October 2017 - 11:27 AM

Found this guy off of Playa Ocotal in Costa Rica.  Was about 40 feet in the sandy area of a shoot.  Any ideas?

Trying to make sense of nudibranch species classifications

01 April 2017 - 11:35 AM

I'm sure there is something that I am missing, but I am trying to tie morphology to the scientific naming and not having great luck.  Some are ok, like Nembrotha species, until you find Tambja morosa that looks like it should be in that group.  I've never taken a marine biology class, so there is probably something terribly basic and obvious that I need to learn...


One more from Anilao

This guy was pretty big, maybe 4-6 inches across.  


Flabellina sp?

Also from Anilao.  I'm guessing Flabellina because of the coloration, but not sure...

I think this is a Chomodoris species, but I can't find it in any of the books.  It is not magnifica because it doesn't have white on it.  Any ideas?
