A very interesting color
pattern... as I remember, this was one of only a few
photos I took when my great friend Bob Wolfe and I (a
fellow USAF flying squadron member and underwater
photographer) went on a brief vacation to Puerto Galera,
located off one of the Philippine islands just south of
Luzon (the main island). It was disastrous overall--
rainy season, big waves-- such bad weather the boat
drivers wouldn't take us out to dive. I made a beach dive
and encountered this species in about 30 feet of water.
It was the first and only time I ever encountered this
variety of nudibranch.
