Dendronotus subramosus?

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

I saw about 5-10 of these guys feeding on the Aglaophenia genus (feather hydroid). In my mind it's clearly a different species than the other Dendronotus that we see on kelp.

Right now I'll call them Dendronotus subramosus.

I'll look for them again this weekend! I found them quite close to where I live.

btw, here's the top view, showing the 4 lines described in Dave's book

Nicely photographed, Sko-T. Hopefully, Dave will confirm the ID, after he gets his legs under him (just returned from a major trip to China).
BTW, on the same dive, I photographed what may be Diaphorodoris lirulatocauda (pg. 58, "Eastern Pacific Nudibranchs"). Image attached.

Cheers, K:-)

Dave took a look at both nudies and confirmed the IDs are accurate. Thanks, Dave. Congrats Sko-T on two new nudies!

Great finds among the fields of various hydroids and bryozoans! Woohoo!
