Is this a worm or a nudi?

I didn't see it until now, but it looks very much like a nudibranch to me.

 

I should add that I think it is an Aeolid and maybe Flabellina sp. or Calorina sp. http://www.seaslugforum.net/ would be the place to look.

I am no expert .. but I was thinking Cuthona sp.

 

Looking at photos they look the same ... but distribution is a bit off maybe ... I would be interested to know what I am missing that differentiates these guys.

Nudibranch -definately

 

Would go with the Flabellina assertion

 

Pretty little things those Flabellinas arent they??

:P

Just because nobody answered your question does not mean you stumped them. There are a lot of new or inexperienced divers on this forum that ask questions which don't necessarily get answered. Why? Because we are all hoping someone else will do it.
