  1. Just took a dive trip to Morehead City, NC. Had fantastic weather and great diving. Went diving 7 days in a row. Must be a record in NC.

    Let me know what you think.




    Can you believe we now have lion fish in the Atlantic? This was taken on the wreck of the Naeco in 140 ft of water. This is the 3rd year I personally have seen them there. They seem to be doing well. I saw 6 in the limited amount of time I had on the wreck. They are now featured in the Aquarium in NC. (where you can see another of my lionfish pictures).




    Are you still photographing McGinty's Cyphoma on your NC wrecks?

    Thanks, AnneDiver

    A friend, Robert Shearer, found this "bone?" Scuba diving the other day.


    It was found in the sand in 72' of water at

    Hog Heaven Reef off Boca Raton, FL, on 6/5/2010


    It looked like bone to Robert.


    Can anyone help identify what it is and what it is from?


    Thank you Anne

  3. It's a flatworm Lucas. Many of them have cephalic tentacles which are very misleading!



    Leslie is right, it is a flatworm, possibly a Paraplanocera species

    Have a look in "Marine Flatworms, The World of Polyclads" byLeslie Newman and Lester Cannon

  4. found these three nudis in bonaire last week.

    can someone provide and ID please


    matt :)


    Hey Matt,

    Some nice nudis you have there. I agree with Marli on 1 and 3.

    For #2, can you send a cropped high res so I can see the animal better.

    I'm not sure what you have there.

    Is the Nudibranch missing a rhinophore?

    Do you have any other photos ot it?

    You can send me a PM if you like with hi res attachments.

    Thanks, Anne DuPont

    Hi Leslie,


    I have a beautiful worm for you. Can you please tell me who it is. It has bristles along the side of the body. The photo was taken by a dive buddy in West Palm Beach, Fl.

    The worm was probably about an inch long. I have attached dorsal and and ventral views. Thanks, Anne

  6. Found in approx 80ft water, close to wreck site. Approx 2cm long, and super speedy. Colour - black with fine yellow stripes. Never seen one of these before, although I have seen other varieties of sea slugs in St. Vincent.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Kay Wilson,

    Indigo Dive, St. Vincent.



    Hey Kay,


    Great find there, beautiful! Anne

  7. Hi Fletcher,


    What a beautiful photo of a pair of Glossodoris you found there!


    Your nudibranchs are indeed "Glossodoris sedna".


    It is found on page 146 of Caribbean Sea Slugs.


    And, I'm happy that you are using the book.

  8. Hi Kay,

    What great finds! We will add St Vincent to the Geographic range of both.


    The yellow and white one appears to be a color form of "Flabellina dushia" Page 238 Caribbean Sea slugs.

    and the pair appear to be Chelidonura berolina, or could be Chelidonura africana, page 36 Caribbean Sea Slugs.

    Keep up the excellent work! You are really finding a lot of species in St Vincent.

    Keep up the great work...Anne

  9. Hi Kaye,

    Excellent Find! You will find Flabellina engeli shown on Page 240 of "Caribbean Sea Slugs".

    We will now add St Vincent to the Geographic Range.

    Hope to get down to dive with you sometime.

    And a shameless plug for the book, you can get "Caribbean Sea Slugs" from www.seachallengers.com or from Amazon.
