Nudibranch #1 from Manado, Indonesia

Recommended Posts

Here's a couple of shots of a nudibranch from Manado, Indonesia.

 

It's seems familiar to me, but I can't figure out what species or even genus this is.

 

There seems to be a golden patch on the notum just in front of the cerata. Maybe that patch is a caruncle (like in Janolus) or maybe it's actually the rhinophores, because the white tentacles with black markings seem more like oral tentacles than rhinophores.

Lastly, I've attached a large cropped photo of the head. Any ideas as to species?

You're looking in the wrong place. Try Saccoglossa, Limapontiidae. Ercolania? Stiliger? Costasiella?

Thanks Leslie. It does seem similar to Ercolania or Stiliger, but I haven't found a match yet.
