Opalescent nudibranch (Hermissenda crassicornis): This is possibly the prettiest nudibranch in our area, and one of the most common. It is especially often found in sheltered spots, such as in harbors and narrow bays. It is also a regular find in tidepools. The opalescent nudibranch is readily identified by the yellow stripe on the back of its neck, and its orange-tipped cerata.
