Trinchesia RB2

This undescribed nudibranch is found on algae, often in rockpools. It has a greenish body and cerata, which are tipped with blue and orange. The oral tentacles are blueish. This nudibranch has similar colouration to a number of other species, and can be distinguished by its smooth rhinophores (from Austraeola ornata), a lack of distinct rings on its cerata (from Baeolidia spp.) and its body colouration (from other Trinchesia species).
