Nudibranch (16-20Jun10) 03.jpg
Green Island, Taiwan -- Nembrotha milleri of the Polyceridae family.<br />
<br />
This nudibranch is easily recognizable by its greenish-black color with black pigment on the rhinophores and gills. Its body tissue is relatively smooth with longitudinal folds.<br />
<br />
It feeds on solitary or colonial tunicates (sea squirts) and is usually found at a relatively shallow depth of 3-10 m.<br />
<br />
Members of Nembrothinae have relatively small oral tentacles compared to other members of the polyceridae family, e.g. Roboastra luteolineata elsewhere in this gallery.
