Eubranchus rustyus from California [1]

From: Clinton Bauder

Hi Bill,

This is Eubranchus rustyus. Alicia had shown me this slug when she was here in May but it was too surgy to photograph it. It was still probably too surgy on Saturday but I gave it a go anyway, somewhat to the frustration of my dive buddies who spent the better part of the dive watching me shake my head and curse the camera.

Locality: Pfieffer Point, 20 meters, CA, USA, Pacific, 21 July 2007, Rocky Reef. Length: 3 mm. Photographer: Clinton Bauder.

Hi Clinton,

Yes - your ID is correct. This tiny aeolid has green sploches on it back. Not bad shots considering the surge.

Thanks for sharing,
