Nanaimo Nudibranch:
Nanaimo Nudibranch (Acanthodoris nanaimoensis): This nudibranch feeds on colonial ascidians and bryozoans, and can be found in the intertidal area. It is easily recognized by the brown or reddish gills and rhinophores.

At first sight, it may look somewhat like Stearn's ear-shell (Marsenina stearnsii), which also feeds on colonial ascidians, but this species has little flecks on the body, rather than pits.
