Phestilla melanobrachia aeolid nudibranch

Yesterday I was finally able to photograph the beautiful nudibranch. It has both black and bright orange-yellow colour forms. Happy I caught the black one, the colour matching the colour of the dendrophylliid coral (Tubastrea, Dendrophyllia) on which specimens are feeding.
