This creature is known for being almost full translucent. Because of this trait, though, one can observe its inside and the details in the middle of its cerata and tubercles. The way it feeds is fascinating: Engel’s Melibe, also called the Ghost nudibranch uses an oral hood like other Melibe species. The net-like mouth can quickly contract when it detects small crustaceans like tiny crabs and shrimps or other food sources.
It is a favorite challenge of underwater macro photographers to caption the perfect image of this difficult macro subject.
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.
