Tenellia sp. 57

Author: Undescribed

Order: Nudibranchia  Family: Fionidae

Maximum Size: 7 mm

Sightings: Sunshine Coast


The rhinophores are long smooth and tapered. The oral tentacles are joined across the base forming what looks almost like an oral veil. The propodial corners are distinctive, but well-rounded rather than developed into tentacles. The tail is tapered but short. The cerata have golden-yellow digestive glands with flecks of red whilst their surface carries random longitudinal stripes (squiggles) of white pigment. A white cnidosac is visible at the tip.
