Fluffy looking nudibranch found on animal turf of low shore rocks in sheltered bay, about 25 mm
Out of water the gills take on a distinct star shape.
No interactions present.
Quote from Habitas.org.uk "A. pilosa is easily distinguished from other British nudibranchs by its overall 'fluffy' appearance."
there's another example at www.ispot.org.uk/node/120782 that hasn't been distinguished enough
Yes, I remember the fluffiness from mine here http://www.ispotnature.org/node/370097.
Picture 1 (original) show the rhinophore I was looking for - thanks.
A few iSpot posts show these creatures out of water where fluffiness is, of course, absent.
