(Rose-Lined Nembrotha)
Pronunciation:
 
Kindgom: Animalia
Phylum: Mollusca
Class: Gastropoda
Order: Nudibranchia
Family: Polyceridae
Genus: Nembrotha
Species: N. rosannulata
Notes: Large dull green nembrothid with the body textured with rounded longitudinal ridges and scattered raised pustules of various sizes. The pustules are black and each is surrounded by a pink ring which give this species its characteristic colour pattern - and name. The rhinophores are black, and the pink rhinophores sheaths are edged in black. The front of the mantle has a pink band which is edged in black and the oral tentacles are pink with black tips. The gill stalks and branches are pink while the gill pinnae are black. This species grows to at least 12 cm in length alive and present information suggest it feeds exclusively on the stalked ascidian Sigillina cyanea.
