This white wart nudibranch is a first!!!!! I took this picture at a reef called TEXAS in
Southern Mozambique. It was on a rock face covered with various coral species. The size was approximately 15mm long. I stayed with it for most of the dive, hoping the gills will "come out of hiding" but to no avail, my air ran out. Water temperature was 24 degrees. The depth was about 17 meters. After returning to the dive site the nudibranch had disappeared!

This is a species I am calling Gymnodoris sp. 5 as it has not been named as yet - although I am working on that. You would have been waiting a while for its gills to come out any more because they don't expand much more than the liitle ring you can see in your photo.
