Diving the cold and dark waters here at Whidbey Island, I came across quite a few of this slug. I have not seen it here before. I guess it is Cumanotus sp.1 in Dave Behrens Pacific Coast Nudibranchs.
Locality: Whidbey Island, harbor, WAshington, USA. Pacific Ocean. Depth: 20 feet. Length: 1.25 inch. 21 December 2005. muddy. Photographer: Jan Kocian

Another interesting addition. It certainly seems to be Dave's Cumanotus. It is interesting how the rhinophores have a common base, and also to see the shape of the egg ribbon.
