One of the more unattractive nudibranch species, this large dorid species is known by the scientific name of Asteronotus cespitosus.
This individual was close to a foot in length, and was found as it moved across a coral reef at night on the Wheeler Reef System off of Townsville, Queenland on the Great Barrier reef System in Australia.
The rhinophores of this species retract into a protective sheath which identifies this as a species of Asteronotus rather than a Pleruobranch.
