It was a fantastic night dive last night, at least the last half was. As soon as the current subsided, everything came out in “Nudi World”. In a very small area of hydroids, I found two different species of sea spiders that I have never seen before. One was pretty big, reddish in color with yellow patches on its legs. The other was huge and beige. Diane, who had also found a specimen nicknamed it the “taranchula”. Also in the same area were many nudibranchs – pink, red, orange, brown, blue, purple – too many to manage to photograph. A large seahorse was trying to hide in plain sight and a bobbit worm was out looking for hydroids to munch on (or whatever they eat). But my favorite of the evening was the big “Phidiana lynceus” nudibranch that Anne found.
