How big ?

Well, here's my thumb next to the group of three.

By meausuring my thumb I reckon these these slugs are close to 6mm (1/4”) long from tip to tip.

Middle Arch
Poor Knights Islands

On the wall in Middle Arch I found three slugs on a sad looking little hydroid tree. The largest of the three (bottom photo) is unusually large at about 8mm long and looks like he has seen better days.

The Sugarloaf
Poor Knights Islands

These guys like to feed on hydroids and I have often seen them crawling up the stems of Tubularia and launching an attack on the head, just as this one is doing.

At this time, Flabellina albomarginata seem to be particluarly common at the Poor Knights and I am seeing several of them on most dives.
