Dear Bill
This is my first appearance in this site.

I found this sea slug in Sagami Bay, Japan.

Would you tell me about this?

Dear Kumiko,
Kikutaro Baba's book has made Sagami Bay a famous place for sea slugs, and it has such beautiful animals, such as Sagaminopteron ornatum named after it. Your animal has very distinctive colours but I am unable to identify it. I am sorry I couldn't give you an instant answer on your first visit to the Forum. If anyone has any ideas can they please let me know.

Best wishes,
