Aeolidida

The Aeolidida feature long tapering bodies and structures on the back known as cerata, which are often equipped with stinging cells taken from Cnidarians. Some we see regularly at certain dive sites, others are rarities spotted by the Chaloklum Diving team when out hunting for underwater photographs.

We have spotted 3 Cerberilla species so far, all seen on the sand outside Koh Phangan local reefs. (3 Galleries)
