Chromodoris cazae

When my friend Rita Bento, the marine biologist who works for the EDA, pointed this nudibranch out to me, I screamed out of frustration. We were diving the A300 plane wreck off Atlantis Palm in Dubai, and I was shooting wide angle with a 10.5mm lens!

Fortunately on subsequent dives I found more examples, and was surprised to find out that;

1. They are endemic to the Persian Gulf

2. They were discovered by and named after my friend Carole Harris, who originally found the first examples on the Port Rashid wrecks.
