From: Tim Schulz
My name is Tim Schulz and I was wondering if you may be able to shed some light on a situation I have found myself in. This weekend I was diving on the Great Barrier Reef on a trip that departs from Townsville. On one particular night dive i saw a nudibranch the measured approximately 35cm +. I was between 9 and 12m deep and i thought little of it until the people on the boat said that nudibranchs do not occur at that size. Is that so or is that a normal size for one. If you could reply with a bit of information or a contact address for someone who may know about it i would be very grateful.

Have a look at the page the page on the Sea Slug Forum discussing largest longest etc nudis, which will give you some background information and some species to have a look at. Basically 35cm is big but not outrageous for some species.
