Here is a Crosslandia viridis that Ron Greer discovered in 2m water at Point Turton Jetty, Yorke Peninsula, SA in about Mid 1998. It was about 20mm long.

It's good to get photos and records of this rarely reported species. Athough it looks as though it is a herbivorous sacoglossan, it is in reality a hydroid-feeding dendronotoidean related to the pelagic nudibranch Scyllaea pelagica.
To those of you who are unfamiliar Crosslandia, have a look at the photo at the top of the page. In Stuart's photos the head [at the right side] is obscured by the large anterior parapodial lobe.
