Nudibranch Mimic: One for Leslie

Recommended Posts

Gorgeous little Lembeh flatworm, complete with "rhinophores". Anyone know what it is?

 

Cheers,

Marli

Cute little wormie. Looks like it can't decide if it wants to be camouflaged (the middle section) or advertise its toxicity (margin). But I can't find it either......

I know I've seen this type before, although usually brown and bland looking...any guess at a Genus?

I really hate guessing genus in flatworms! So much of the characters are internal that it's really a shot in the dark. I mean, Pseudoceros & Pseudobiceros are distinguished by the presence of a single penis or two penises so unless you get a photo of an animal penis-fencing it's kinda hard to tell..... :)

Now I remember the genus that has these tentacles over the brain region:

Paraplanocera

 

maybe.....
