From: Marcelo Krause
My name is Marcelo Krause and I am an underwater photographer here in Brazil. I am sending you some pictures of nudibranchs that I photographed here in the south of Brazil. This animal was photographed in Florianopolis and is quite commmon. I am having a little difficulty trying to find its name.

This is a colour form or subspecies of Hypselodoris picta which is only known from Brazil. It has recently been named Hypselodoris picta lajensis. Have a look at the page on Hypselodoris picta for photos of some of the other colour variations of this species, which is found on both the west and east coasts of the Atlantic.
I will post your other photo soon. If you have other photos of nudibranchs from Brazil, even ones you have identified, they would be very welcome additions to the Forum,
