I stumbled upon this little beauty of an opisthobranch on Håkjærholmen west of Bergen on the Norwegian west coast on Saturday January 31st 2009. As far as I can tell, it has never been seen in Norway. I turned to Christian Skauge to help me identify it as Hermaea bifida. I later got the ID confirmed by Jussi Evertsen.
Locality: Håkjærholmen, 3.5 meters, Bergen, Norway, North sea, 31.January 2009, Rocky bottom. Length: 50 mm (approx). Photographer: Bjørnar Nygård.

Thanks very much for this new record and for the wonderful photos. The animal is so transparent that we can almost examine its anatomy from the outside, without dissection.
