Description

Nudibranchs are a group of sea slugs characterized by having no shell, thus having their gills exposed. The name in latin, nudibranchia means precisely that: nudi (nude, exposed) + branchia (gills).
Instead of the protective shell, the nudibranchs use other intricate defense mechanisms and that's one of the reasons they are such an interesting group to study. Not to mention their exquisite appearance.

Images by Brenna Green of a specimen I found in the low intertidal. Formerly classified as Aplysia parvula, I just found out that this Eastern Pacific species was described in 2019 and named after my friend and colleague Craig Hoover; thus the post. Congratulations, Craig!

3rd image shows the shore where the specimen was found (water edge of cobbles at left).
