Lettuce is good for you.

Today I got a decent shot of the Lettuce Sea Slug.  It is pretty much the only "nudi proper" I think I'll see on this trip.  There are several living on a rock right by the ladder but it's really hard to get a good shot with all the surge.

So today on the dive site "Knife", I found this Lettuce Sea Slug:

Those two feelers up front are the rhinophores and today I learned that underneath it's got a black and white pattern with black and whites spots.


  1. I thought a Lettuce Sea Slug was not a proper nudibranch... Maybe I need to re-do my metadata.

  2. OMG. You are totally right. Blame it on Graham Abbott. He started me including all these slugs in my nudi blog. I guess I may have my honorary malacologist badge pulled. :(
