    Since the "Nudibranch Lovers" group is no longer, maybe we can revive it here? Who knows, if this thread takes off maybe we could generate a Nudibranch Lovers sticky, subforum or forum?

    Which forum is the best place for a Nudibranch Lovers gathering place? I put it here in Marine Life and Ecosystems but it could work in the Photography forum as well, any ideas?

    The old group site was a great place to post photos of Nudis as well as discuss all things Nudibranch. If you are a Nudibranch lover, post something here and spread the word.

    Here is a photo of a Kunie's Chromodoris (Chromodoris kuniei) from Cabilao, Phillipines

    Nice one djtimmy77, I've been hearing about the legendary Blue Heron Bridge, I need to dive Jupiter soon.

    Shall we play name that Nuibranch? I would have never guessed this one was from Florida.

    Thanks for posting

    A warty sea slug. Shot off NC which is a lot further north then usually reported. I have found both brown and blue varieties in both 50 and 100 fsw water.

    I was in Anilao (Philippines) and did 44 dives at Club Ocellaris. Most everyone went crazy for nudibranchs and other unique critters like the pygmy seahorses. I spent most of my time filming the common stuff (like soft and hard corals) since they have far greater impact on ecosystem functioning. I think some of the other divers and the DMs thought I was crazy, but many of the nudibranchophiles I meet are like the life list birders. However, I love great pictures of nudies from around the world!
