Concerning message #2678:
This species looks very much like Lecithophorus capensis - it is white, but slightly see-through behind the gills. We call it the "ghost nudibranch" for that reason. In Cape Town it is common on most reefs.

Thanks very much for getting back to us on a longterm 'unknown'. I would be very grateful for some photos of Lecithophorus capensis, if you have any, as it is not found outside South Africa, and the only photo I have seen of it is the one in Terry Gosliner's Nudibranchs of South Africa.
