The colors on this nudibranch are absolutely breathtaking! This is Chromodoris sphoni and you can see where the chromo part of its name comes in – the blues, yellows, and reds make this creature look like it was hand-painted by a master artist! It only grows to about 40 mm in length, but even with its miniscule size it still packs quite the visual punch!
