Nembrotha cristata is similar in size and colour to Nembrotha kubaryana, its main point of difference is the green margin to its foot, which is red in N. kubaryana, and N. cristata lacks any red colour on oral tentacles, gills, rhinophores, and 'tail'. It feeds on the green compound ascidian Eudistoma olivaceum. This shot shows a pretty pale colour variant, perhaps a different species.
