At first glance the Elegant Butterfly Seaslug (Cyerce elegans) may look like a pale critter covered in wings, but with a careful look Cyerce elegans perfectly embodies its name. Also a species of butterfly sea slug, it boasts translucent cerata that are white, cream, brownish or reddish in color (depending on its diet and locality) and have luminous, defined edges as well as iridescent blue and green spots near the base. The head features bifurcate rhinophores similar to Cyerce nigra.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
