Concerning message #14768:
We found this nudibranch on Saturday evening and think it is Okenia mija. Is our identification correct?

Dear Leanne and David,
Thanks for these great photos of the rarely reported Okenia mija. I think we can say that the yellowish patches, each with a dark spot, will turn out to be a good identifying character of this species
