A nudibranch, meaning 'naked gilled', mollusc is pictured here as it moves over the coral. This group has scores of species with lovely colour patterns, and there are many species still undescribed. 'Sea slug' is a popular name for nudibranch, a name that does not do justice to the splendid appearance of this green-spotted creature.
