Mexichromis pusilla

Mexichromis pusilla

Description:

This dorid nudibranch has a pink-orange body, gills and rhinophores. Its mantle is edged with a thick, wavy, pale-yellow band, and there are two white spots on its dorsum. This species is easily confused with other similarly-colored nudibranchs, especially Noumea varians and Noumea norba. It feeds on sponges and grows to a length of about 2cm. Formerly referred to as Durvilledoris pusilla.

Notes:

Spotted this tiny nudibranch at a depth of 30m during a day dive, at the dive site called Dapia Wall, off the coast of Talikud Island, Samal. It measured about 1cm.
