Nembrotha sp. taken by Webmaster in PNG, March 2012
Nembrotha sp. (undescribed)|
Okay, now I am really freaking out, another spotted critter resembling what the past few BOW's have called the juvenile color form of Nembrotha mullineri. The only problem with this fellow is that it does not change color as it matures, the adult being identical to the juvenile.

So this makes it a new one, absent from all of the recent nudibranch guides, because it lacks any form of color on the margin of the foot, blue or orange.
Observed in Batangas Province of the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, and Lembeh, Indonesia by Jim Black .
Wish I had more info for you but I simply don't. Keep your eyes open.
Jerry on our Okinawa trip of 2002
In 1992, while accompanying a group of CAS marine biologists to the island of Mindanao in the Philippines, he documented a new species of nudibranch which was named for him. See Ceratosoma alleni .
He has traveled extensively throughout Asia documenting the marine animals that proliferate this region. He is also an avid nature photographer and is available for field animal behavior documentation assignments.Jerry took first place in the advanced division for the best of 2004 during the January competition at SDUPS. See his awesome pigmy seahorse image from the Lembeh Straits!
Jerry has come a long way equipment wise since using the Nikon 3, DA-2 Sports Finder, and motor drive in a Tussey Proline Housing pictured above. In fact, the Webmaster was also using the same rig on this trip. The Tussey system was robust and took great pictures! I moved on to HD Video and Jerry eventually moved into the digital age in a big way, purchasing a Nikon D-700! A shot of grey whales taken with the D-700 is presented for your enjoyment. Please don't rip it off for commercial purposes!
