Thanks for the tip. All i can find is a 100 year old paper with descriptions but no illustrations.

Maybe the Fluvarium can offer some information. Located in St. John's, the facility explains many aspects of our lakes and rivers, and they keep aquatic organisms on display, such as frogs and eels. Although a small admission fee is required, the program stays open during the winter, from morning until four thirty. I believe I called a biologist from the Fluvarium when I was younger, asking for information about frogs.  (reply...)

They could appear because of temperature, although I've found the water temperature to be pretty low when I see them.  (reply...)

Very interesting, it may have something to do with water temperature. the water here in smith sound is often warmer in November than it is in July.

Thanks!! I find them in tidepools between two beaches located in Britannia. I've only found nudibranchs in autumn.  (reply...)
