Judi Martin has taken some pics of nudis which we are having trouble identifying.
I scanned them off slides, so they are not very clear. They are from Little Beach, Port Stephens, New South Wales [Australia].

Dear David & Leanne,
This is Discodoris lilacina which is a common tropical Indo-West Pacific species. One feature of the species is that when disturbed it can break off all or part of its mantle skirt. See the page on Autotomy.
The mantle skirt in this photo seems to be missing on the right hand side, but it may just be folded down and hidden in the shadow.
