Dear Bill.
I took these pictures of a sea slug which I think is Aplysia oculifera. Make use of it for the Sea Slug Forum.

Shimoda, Izu Peninsula, Sagami Bay , Japan. Depth: 0.2m (Intertidal), 15 Dec 2001
Upper Photo: about 80mm long
Lower photo: about 60mm long
Water temperature: 16C degrees.

Best Regards,

Dear Jun,
Thanks very much. This is a species I did not have good photos of so it is a very welcome addition. Its name 'oculifera' means 'carrying eyes' and refers to the little brown eyespots all over the body.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
