Here is a collection of Nudibranchs that we spotted in just two dives around Phi Phi Le. I don’t dive with a macro lens, just a Canon G16 which is a great all-rounder including for video, so believe me, I wasn’t even looking for them. It was only after I got back that I realised how many we’d seen.
Not sure what the collective noun for nudis is – an aggregation?
A Dorid nudibranch – the Beautiful Risbecia
Another Dorid nudibranch – my mathematical favourite the Geometric Chromodoris
More Dorid nudibranchs – Avens Glossodoris
A Twin chromodoris close up
A Dorid nudibranch called ‘Candy Halgerda’ – has to be her stage name!
Another Dorid nudibranch – another Beautiful Risbecia
The Dorid nudibranch Avens Glossodoris
The under-rated and Undescribed Polyclad Flatworm
That very Dorid nudibranch – the Swollen Phyllidia
Finally an Aeolid nudibranch – the Facelinidae
Another rather uninspiring Twin chromodoris
(You might want to book-mark this page a quick reference guide to common nudis. I’ll be posting more as we get them).
