From: Nishina Masayoshi

Dear Bill,
The Echizen coast in winter is very cold and rough. It's a very severe winter for nudibranchs. The period when they can become active is for the three months from July to September. The population explodes during this summer period. I saw more then 100 individuals in 5 dives there.

Date: 3 Aug 2002
Location: Echizen coast, Fukui pref. Japan
Lengh: 10mm
Depth: 6m
Water temp: 27C degree
