eolid sp. h194

We saw this species of eolid only once. A pair of them (the orange rhinophores of the second one are barely visible at the left end of the nudibranch) were in about a half meter of water on a short basalt wall at night at Makua. They were in a small cove where I would enter and exit the water, and I spotted these while taking off my flippers in preparation to climb up on the basalt rocks. The date was 19 September 1979.
