Blue Dragon Nudibranch

On the same dive where we found those Nemobrotha Nudis, I managed to find this absolutely stunning Blue Dragon Nudibranch (Pteraeolidia ianthina).

Today is a bit of a sad day though as I am leaving Andavadoaka and beginning my journey back towards home.

    I have to confess… This one looked a bit boring to me at that time (next to the colourful nudi), but your pictures show how incredibly beautiful they are!

      Ok – well, if we’re confessing things, I didn’t realize just how cool of a nudibranch this was while I was in the water either. I could see a little of the color, but mainly I was just happy to find a nudibranch with cerata as I find them cool. It wasn’t until I looked at the photos on the computer and saw the coloration, and also found it in the book and saw it had a really cool name.
