Not sure what your nudibranch is? Post it here for identification!

I don't often find small Dotos because my eyesight isn't all that great for these little guys. But I did find this one at San Juan Island yesterday--- anyone able to ID it?

Thanks!
Dan

Hi Dan,
Nice animal. My first inclination is to call it a Doto amyra, though the cerata appear to lack typical coloration. Perhaps Dave will pipe in and give a more positive ID (he's a bit under the weather since returning from 3 weeks of diving in Bali, Indonesia).

Cheers, k;-)

Thanks for the ID!

Three weeks in Bali? Sounds pretty rough to me! :)
