What is this?


I was diving in Indonesia and found this.  No one on the ship knew what it was...


Looks like a nudibranch, although I'm not sure what species exactly.

Other possibility

It could possibly be a species of Sea Cucumber, since all the large tentacles seem to be coming from the mouth end, which is similar to the Hidden Sea Cucumber Pseudothyone belli in the Caribbean.

I think I made some

I think I made some progress.  It appears that this is a number of sea cucumbers, rather than one animal.  I found something similar to what one of this would look like, but it doesn't have the projections on the legs.  Anybody?  Jane
