  3. That's a general overview of the general makeup of nudibranchs in the most general of terms. A more specific question now: Do *you* have any nudibranch photos/videos/articles you'd like to share with the group?

  4. That last Janolus photo is from Monterey by local photographer JR Sosky () Here's another look:

  5. Aeolid nudibranchs like Janolus barbarensis have many projections on their backs called cerata, which increase the slug's surface area—aiding in respiration, digestion and even defense! The tips of some aeolid cerata carry stolen stinging cells from their spicy hydroid meals.

  6. Next up, the gills! Dorid nudibranchs like the Hopkins Rose Okenia rosacea have tufts of gill plumes that project like a bunny’s tail from their backside.

  10. General characteristics: The “ears” of a nudibranch are actually its noses, called “rhinophores”—”nose bearers.” That's how you find their face. Rhinophores vary wildly across nudibranchs—they can look like a bouquet of flowers, the antennae of a moth, or a multi-colored auger.

  11. If you're new to nudibranchs, here's the skinny. “Nudibranch” means “naked gills”. They’re sea slugs. They come in SO MANY shapes, colors and sizes. Two main types: Dorids (📷 1) with gill plumes on the back, and Aeolids (📷 2) with many multi-purpose projections called cerata.

    In a global ocean filled with delightful wonders of color and character, there is perhaps no more photogenic nudibranch than the West Coast's Spanish Shawl, Flabellina iodinea. The regal purple body, fiery orange cerata and crimson rhinophores... *chef's kiss*

    First up: Diaulula sandiegensis San Diego Dorid at the Aquarium, on the prowl through the reef looking for sponge burger. These slugs can be found from Alaska to Baja, and are frequently spotted right here in Monterey! Also spotted: their backs.
