Asked to Seaslug forum:

I saw this yesterday in Amed, North Bali. I tried to find it in the Debelius Nudibranch book, and it seems to resemble a Roboastra or Tambja, but I am not sure which.

Locality: Lipah, Amed, Karang Asem, Bali, Indonesia, Lombok Strait. Depth: 12 metres. Length: 2 - 3 cm . 20 November 2005. Black Sand. Photographer: Hengky Dotulong

I’m hoping that you can help! Thanks so much, I look forward to hearing back from you and enjoy your website very much.

Best regards,
Hengky Dotulong

Answered from Seaslug forum:

Dear Hengky,
I think this is Tambja tentaculata. We still have a lot to learn about these animals so I could be wrong. This species normally has yellow stripes with black edging to the yellow lines. What I suspect happens is that the yellow lines contract so only the black parts shows. If you look at the juvenile in Marta Pola’s message [#14593] there is no sign of the yellow.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman

    i believe it’s a Tambja species but also can’t find a match in my books…

  2. Hengky Dotulong says:

    Yup, I still ask to www.seaslugforum.net, the colour more similiar to Roboastra tigris, but maybe is not because Roboastra tigris is big like 30 cm and the wildness nudibranch found at Mexico.

  4. Erwin Kodiat says:
