New Nudibranch Noticed September 23, 2010

Posted by stuffilikenet in Awesome, Science.


Flabellina goddardi (the long stringy stuff is an egg case) was discovered in 2008 by Jeff Goddard of the Marine Science Institute at U.C. Santa Barbara in a tidepool at Carpinteria.  It’s only been announced recently because it’s kinda hard to tell the difference between the nudibranchs and requires much confirmation…and the fact that nobody else has found any.

Lucky for him to find it in his own backyard.
