This nudibranch species was named after its discoverer Neville Coleman and is arguably the most coveted nudibranch among underwater photography enthusiasts. This wonder of nature may look like a pile of white strings, but it is actually a network of digestive gland tubules that cover its transparent body and cerata. When it is hanging around its host, the soft-coral like nudibranch seems invisible to untrained eyes. We found our first Melibe colemani here in Romblon back in May 2014. It was also the first record for the Philippines (as far as we’ve known).
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.
