Found at about 2p.m., in a rock pool/crevice, at the kaikoura seal colony, in a part that was in shadow, and then on the shadier side of the crevice too. Was awake and moving about.

Have since read they are nocturnal, and did wonder when it was in all that shade.

Is it a fish? Is it a slug? Is it a fishy anemone? I do not have a clue what this is!

It is about 30mm long and there were a few of them in the sand - outgoing tide nearly on the turn. Most were buried and only the "fan fin" was showing.

Resting on the wet sand, when the sand collapsed it arched it's face upwards (2nd and third photos) and seem to spawn capsule from somewhere - there are 2 floating in the 4th pic.

Totally hypnotic, by the time my sister-in-law and I carried on the brother had walked 2kms away from us!

New undescribed species found!
Photo taken with my Olympus TG 6.
Dr Richard Willan has identified it from these and another divers photos as an Aeolidia, a nudibranch feeds on anenome. We also found spawn next to one.

Dr Willans comments;
I have absolutely no doubt that we have an aeolid here – its family is most likely Aeolidiidae (which would mean it feeds on sea anemones) and its genus therein most likely Aeolidia (because the cerata are flattened laterally).
This guess is reinforced by the complete lack of propodial tentacles on the front margin of the foot.
