  • Photo description: A large nudibranch (yellow with black patterns, and dense gill-structure). This is A. minor, sometimes known as the "Banana Nudibranch" because of it's size and colour. This was seen at a depth of ~30m while diving around Pescador Island (Moalboal, Philippines). It was quite long (nearly 20cm) and thick/bulky compared to most nudibranchs I've seen. (The only larger nudis I've seen are Melibe spp., and of course, the Spanish Dancer.) I guess the sobriquet "Banana Nudibranch" is somewhat appropriate given the dimensions.
