Spanish Shawl (Flabellinopsis iodinea) Nudibranch Hard Enamel Pin
The Spanish Shawl Nudibranch ranges from British Columbia to Mexico and can also be found in the Galapagos. The stunningly beautiful coloration of this species comes from astaxanthin, a toxin possessed by a hydroid that Spanish Shawls feed on!
