This unknown nudibranch was taken at Pigeon Island, Dusky Sound, Fiordland [southern New Zealand] in late January 1999. It was tiny, approx 3-5mm. I found it and a couple others on a kelp frond in about 8m during the day.

This is quite an interesting find. To my knowledge this has not been recorded from New Zealand before. It is almost certainly Okenia mija, a small species known from southern Australia.
