Flabellina babai


A pair mating next to recently laid eggs. During the mating season, they enter a frenzy of copulating and spawning, often mating with the same partner right after laying the eggs. All nudibranchs are hermaphrodites and have the genital opening on the right ride.


12 meters deep.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

I'm probably only duplicate some species if there are some noticeable variations and/or observations in very different places.

Thanks, António. This is just one of the most common and most easily seen species along our coast at any time of the year. I still have to upload some more species... in fact, I'm not even half way just in terms of species (I'm not going to upload all my observations in 15 years :) ).

Gorgeous find João,i do not imagined that we have such an amazing biodiversity in what concern to nudibranchs,great work,congrats and thanks for sharing
