Melibe sp. a052

Melibe species have to be among the hardest and most frustrating nudibranchs to photograph. The irregular shape, softly prickly surface and cryptic coloration make the animals below very difficult to distinguish in their normal muck site habitat. This translucent yellowish species has dorsolateral processes that extend out in several points at their tips. To about 50mm.

These from the 2016 trip are likely the same species.
