Rare Bombayana Spotted

News
Shaunak Modi, a marine enthusiast, recently spotted the rare Glossodoris Bombayana at a shore near Haji Ali in Mumbai. Modi spotted the slug during a walk organised for enthusiasts documenting the marine life in the city, called Marine Life of Mumbai. Bombayana is a brightly coloured sea slug that was first described in 1946. It has been spotted in Mumbai after 72 years. Sea slugs are marine species that lack a shell. They are known to creep along the bottom or cling to submerged vegetation, usually in waters just below the low-tide line. These 3cm-long slugs have a white mantle covered with maroon polka dots and bright yellow margin.
