Artist's notes:

The Pugnacious Aeolid was completed on 12.3.2013. There's nothing I enjoy more than exploring the tide pool along the Pacific Coast where I live. Often I'm able to find a nudibranch or two. They're even easier to find when I'm diving - if you can take the time to look. The drawing is based on a photo by Gary McDonald and was used with his permission.

Information about the Pugnacious Aeolid:

The Pugnacious Aeolid is a aeolid nudibranchis a species of sea slug. These animals are shell-less marine gastropod mollusks in the family Aeolidiidae. This sea slug has a small range of distribution, native to the kelp forests of central California coast to Baja California, Mexico. They are also found in the Gulf of Mexico. This nudibranch grows to about 2 inches long (50 mm). The reddish or brownish line across its head is almost always present, and is very characteristic of the species. This species can be confused with Hermissenda crassicornis, which is superficially similar in appearance. This aolid nudibranch species is considered to be rather aggressive, often biting and fighting with other nudibranchs, including members of its own species.
