I was diving at Cawsands with Little Naughty yesterday morning, and found this chap. I can't find him in Nudibranchs of the World, but there are nearly 2000 species in there, so it's possible I missed him :) Can anyone help?

Looks a bit like a Janolus, with the balloonish tentrils with the line through them, and the whitish tips.

Could be a Flabelina too, but they usually have thinner tentrils.

Yeah, he reminded me shape-wise of the white and blue ones (Janolus cristatus).

You could do worse than look up this chap's website Scottish Nudibranchs Click on "photographs" and you'll be taken to a veritable who's who of nudi's.

Just had a quick glance and I think it could be one of these chaps...
