This nudibranch appeared to be a species of aeolid. The specimen was very small, so taking clear photos was difficult. Can anyone give a more detailed identification? I discovered quite a few species that looked almost identical and could be found in the same habitats.

I have been walking these beaches for years and have never seen a nudibranch here, these are amazing sightings Elijah!!

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

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.

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