This is the Sea Clown Triopha (Triopha catalinae) nudibranch that really does resemble a clown! I honestly don’t know why that is, though. I guess it must be because of the bright orange rhinophores and various other bumps and lumps.

These guys reach lengths of 70mm and are named after Santa Catalina Island, California.
