Armina scotti

Spotted only at one of our local dive sites, moving around next to a Sea Pen in the sand. The first one we saw looked mildly dazed, as if it shouldn’t be there (they are meant to be nocturnal, or so some sources suggest). More about them and their interesting feeding habits on the Sea Slug Forum.
