Starry Nudibranch Doriprismatica stellata has very characteristic dark brown to black background colour with the whole body covered in small white specks. The body is relatively hard and the mantle edge [or skirt] is very reduced much like some species of Ceratosoma. Behind the gills the mantle edge fuses in to the long raised posterior part of the foot. The name stellatus is from the Latin word for 'starry' and refers to the colour of the animal. Hopefully the sky still looks like this in some parts of the world.
