Umbrella Slug - Umbraculum umbraculum - First Find

The first umbrella slug for Nature Watch was recorded on June 8th 2017 by @indeynz and is something interesting for us to look out for.

They are found from low water down to scuba diving depths and can look like the wandering anemone, but it has an external shell.

Check out this link for photographs that have labels and show where the shell is.

Happy Hunting!
