Nembrotha livingstonei from Imdonesia

December 17, 2002
From: Jim Bartlett

Here's another Indonesian sea slug I wasn't able to identify from a borrowed book. I also didn't come across photos of creatures identical to it during my scans through the site, though I may have missed it.

This nudi was observed on Mentjeng Wall off of Sanjeang Island near Komodo. The gills seem very unusual to coils of thin radio wire. I estimate the specimen was about 4cm in length; depth was about 12 meters, and time photographed was about 11am local, Nov. 13th 2002.

Thanks for any advice you may have on this one.

Dear Jim,
This is what I am calling Nembrotha livinstonei. The size and colour of the spots seems to be variable but the cross-like mark between the rhinophores seem constant
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
