Atagema sp. b172

The genus is a guess based on similarity of the surface texture of this nudibranch to other well-known species of Atagema. One characteristic feature of this animal is the large volcano-llike structure in the center of the dorsum, which was most prominent on the first specimen observed. This one, maybe 50mm long and shown in the frist few photos below, was found the night of 9 June 2014 near Petiisan.

A second, larger specimen was seen at night at Batuniti on 9 November 2014.
