Janolus barbarensis (Santa Barbara Janolus)
© Gary Powell
Habitat: San Francisco Bay to Baja California, Gulf of California, Mexico
Status: No Conservation Concerns

This spectacular nudibranch is Janolus barbarensis. With exquisite gold and blue ceratal colors, this nudibranch would surely be a treat for any photographer to find (or animal lover in general).

I hope this week goes by quickly – I want the holidays already! Though, starting it off with a New Week Nudibranch always helps! 🙂
