One sap-sucking slug? One Flatworm?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

Been trying to identify these two little fellows, but I have had no luck. Maybe one of you encountered one or both of them.

 

My guess for that one is that it might be a flatworm sp., or a pleusobranchus sp. (maybe a juvenile - but I cannot see antennae)

My guess for that one is that it might be a sap-sucking sea slug, but have not found any sp name yet.

Cheers

The first one is a benthic ctenophore Coeloplana meteoris. One of the two "chimmeys" is very clear on the left & you can see the pinnate tentacle that it uses to catch prey. the one on the right is blurred. If you do a search here you'll find some previous posts about it. Now to hit the books for that branch--

Thank you for your help guys.

 

Leslie, I wouldn't have thought that it belonged to the Comb Jellies. I could have been searching for weeks. Thanks again :)

 

Jeff, that nudibranch species seems to have many shapes, but indeed I can find my little fellow there http://www.nudipixel.net/species/eubranchus_mandapamensis/ also photographed in Bali.
