@Machi, do you see the 'shiny eyes' about 1 cm above the rhinopores of the Nudibranch? That's the eye of the Shrimp. It is resting on the cerata of the Nudibranch.
Check out my video footage of them here :
It was only after reviewing my video footages a few days after the dive that I noticed the Shrimp and then only I reviewed my pics to see if I managed to get a decent shot of the Shrimp on the Nudibranch, unfortunately, it was not the best of focus on the Shrimp as I wasn't even aware it was there then.
@Ana, I am not familiar, but did a Google search and this is what I get :
The caterpillars feed mainly on oleander (Nerium oleander) leaves, a highly toxic plant, to which the caterpillars are immune. They also may feed on most plants of the dogbane family, such as Adenium obesum, Tabernaemontana divaricata and Alstonia scholaris in India.
