HELLO AGAIN.
This is now the second time I've photographed this undescribed nudibranch - the first one was found by Luan Roberts when we were dock fouling in August 2021: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/91369989

Unfortunately I did not have collecting materials with me, and I couldn't detour via CAS, so it got to go about its nudibranch business after these photos were taken.

This mystery slug does not appear in Behrens et al, Eastern Pacific Nudibranchs, 2021, nor have I found any references to it elsewhere.

Watched it wend its way through the algae. It would the climb up on the surface of the water upside down and be carried around/half swim. Its sharp tail used as an anchor point.

It was also swallowed very briefly by a yellow finned gobi who, when the nudibranch was on the sidewall of the channel, came up underneath, observed a moment. Then swallowed. Then spat
