We observed many (dozens) of these Flabellina lineata on Sunday during 2 dives. They ranged from 25 metres up to 9 metres. The water temp was approx 10 deg C. There were also many more spawn masses visible. The animals were all large 35 -55 mm long approx. compared with much smaller animals seen the week previously at a site 50 miles from here.
Locality: Kenmore Point, Loch Fyne, Scotland (Sea Loch on west coast of Scotland). Depth: 9 - 25 metres. Length: 40 mm.16 May 2005. on cliff and boulders. Photographer: Jim Anderson

These animals certainly prove how wrong it is to think that beautiful nudibranchs are only found in tropical waters.
