Mysterious Head Shield Slug?

Recommended Posts

Found at Critter Corner, in around 25ft water, St. Vincent last Friday, approx 4 inches long. Originally thought that it was an Atlantic Sea Hare as it was so big!

Mysterious Head Shield Slug?

 

Thanks!

 

Kay Wilson,

Indigo Dive.

Hi Kay - It is a beauty. I can check when I get home tonight & back to my library. Hopefully Annediver or another caribbean nudi lover can help out in the meantime.

Cheers, Leslie

I think it's Navanax aenigmaticus - http://www.seaslugforum.net/showall/navaaeni

if you scroll down the posts you'll find some images by Alicia Hermosillo that show the same-ish pink background color and blue dots along the edges of the parapodia

Thank you Leslie, this dive was a sea slug fest, and this is something that I have never seen before!
