Caption

Aeolid nudibranch (Phyllodesmium longicirrum) climbing a dead coral branch near Papua New Guinea. The brown patches on the cerata are zooxanthellae, providing extra food to the nudibranch through photosynthesis. This nudibranch also stores a distasteful chemical in its cerata, possibly to deter predators.
