This pretty nudibranch was seen once, at Changi.
Features: About 2cm long. Long,
narrow, soft body with
many long finger-like structures (called cerata) arranged in rows
across the body. It
is identified by the orange lines running along the side of the body
over the head and along the long oral tentacles. The oral tentacles,
the corners of the foot and rhinophores are tipped yellow and the
oral tentacles have orange stripes.
