Caption: Solar-powered nudibranch (Phyllodesmium longicirrum). This sea slug gets its common name from its symbiotic relationship with zooxanthellae algae that are housed in its cerata. These algae photosynthesise and provide the nudibranch with nutrients. Photographed in Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.
