Thorunna sp. 1 Undescribed
Indo-Pacific Nudibranchs and Sea Slugs
Isn't this a spectacular creation? Wow. It is a bit of a challenge to ID, having similarities to Thorunna florens (Courtesy of Bill Rudman's Sea Slug Forum}, Pectinodoris aurora and Hypselodoris maculosa with those opaque white specks and purple margin. We separate it due to the two broad longitudinal bands of pink on the notum. It's sighting here in Tulamben, Bali, Indonesia broadens its original limited occurrence in the Marshall Islands. I would even speculate that the grey sponge it is crawling on here is its prey sponge.
Keep your eyes open, and send us a specimen.
