Polycera hedgpethi from New Zealand

July 24, 1999
From: Ross & Diane Armstrong

Dear Bill

During a night dive in Whangarei Harbour, [northern New Zeland], recently my friend Glenn Edney found the attached nudibranchs.  Unfortunately Glenn's camera decided
not to work so the photos are by Diane and myself.  Any idea of what it is?

Kind regards

Ross & Diane

Dear Ross & Diane,
It looks like its a good time of year for Polycera hedgpethi in New Zealand at the moment as well as eastern Australia. See Peter Firminger's message from yesterday below! It also looks like it is in on its favoured food, the arborescent bryozoan Bugula.
