Photograph of Eubranchus farrani in Ammouliani Island (North Aegean Sea).

Eubranchus farrani is very variable in colour. It usually has a translucent white body, with orange tipped rhinophores and oral tentacles. The white inflated cerrata have conspicuous sub-terminal orange or yellow rings. Some colour variants show individual exaggeration of certain markings.


The sea slug was photographed by Yiannis Iliopoulos along the coasts of Ammouliani Island, Chalkidiki Peninsula, North Aegean Sea (40.3413379° Ν, 23.9145743° Ε) at Petalo 1 Dive Site.
