Nembrotha chamberlaini Gosliner & Behrens, 1997

These were common, with specimens seen at a number of sites around Anilao. To about 60mm.

An egg mass wrapped around a tunicate.

Several were found eating colonial tunicates.

The animals below almost look like they are half way between Nembrotha chamberlaini and N. lineolata. After seeing a number of specimens both at Anilao and in Indonesia and noting that they are frequently found with typical N. chamberlaini, we are placing them together for now. However, it seems likely they represent something different from either N. chamberlaini or N. lineolata.

The individual below is feeding on a blue Rhopolaea tunicate.
