Here's a juvenile Halgerda sp., (H. elegans perhaps?), which I came across in an area strewn with rocks, rubble, silt, sand, very small patches of soft and hard coral, and these strange, green ping-pong ball shaped sponges (?) which are quite common near the mouth of Dragon Cave Bay. As you can see in this picture, this juvenile specimen seems firmly attached to one.
Site: Nudibranch Alley, (Dragon Cave Bay, N.E. Coast, Taipei County, Taiwan)
Date: 27 April 2002
Depth: 10.3 meters
Temp: 21 degrees C.
Size: approximately 8.5 mm
Peace, love, & nudis

We can never be 100% sure with juveniles, but H. elegans seems a good choice,
