The populare name of Phyllodesmium longicirrum is Solar Power Nudibranch because of her solar panel like extensions. But I don’t know no other sea slug with this elegant gracefulness.

    What a fascinating (not to mention beautiful) creature! I love the concept of ‘gardens’. This is a magnificent shot, Norbert, but that comes as no surprise!

  • Maybe this creature is a little strange for the most people. Colorful nudibranchs gets more interest. Thank you!
