It's a good feeling to be able get involved in nudibranchs again, even though it is from above the water at this stage! I've been wandering about in the Sea Slug forum and
found a message from the Atkinsons re Hypselodoris carnea & your reply. I have found and photographed these little beasts quite a few times in the Solitary Islands, (northern new South Wales, Australia) although their colour is a bit variable. Anyway, here are photos of different specimens.
I'm more than happy to help out in the Forum, as I said , its good to be involved again. I'm currently off work until 1st July so have at least a bit of spare time on my hands.

I'm glad to hear from you and any help with the Forum will be greatly appreciated. As you will have seen, quite a few people have questions about keeping nudibranchs in aquaria. I'm sure your expertise in that area will be of great value, as will any photos of interesting animals and even of boring ones doing interesting things.
Thanks for the photos of this Hypselodoris carnea lookalike. If it is indeed H. carnea the species has a strange disjunct distribution, being known only from the western Indian Ocean and eastern Australia. I would very much like some specimens if you find any.
