    The closest I get currently is the Dendrodoris Nigra..I say "closest" as this has a white spot on the antennas...

    On the other Sites they usually refer to the Black Nudi's as either Dendrodoris Nigra or Dendrodoris Fumata...apparently it's hard to tell apart..when grown up, they are black...

    Guess it depends on what it is...we still haven't ID'ed it 100% ...if a Nudi...then probably not...if a sea hare then yes...but that also depends...the last Link I gave on Post #4...some quotes from the Article..
    I'm still not sure about what it is...any chance you can get a better picture...:blush:
