Favorite Nudibranchs – Round Two

As we move on to Round Two of voting on our favorite nudibranchs, we have encountered what I think is a first in five and a half years of running these voting brackets. Not a single matchup was “close.” I usually call that for a difference of 5 votes or closer. There were a couple matchups that were 9 votes apart, but everything else was farther apart. And this was a first round, with 32 matchups, but none were close. Wow!

As a refresher, in case you missed it in the first round: Nudibranch is pronounced “noodi-brank.” Nudibranchs belong to the order Nudibranchia, a group of soft-bodied marine gastropod mollusks that shed their shells after their larval stage. Nudibranchs are a family of opistobranchs (sea slugs) within the phylum Mollusca (mollusks). They are found throughout the world’s oceans, but are most abundant in shallow, tropical waters. Their scientific name, Nudibranchia, means naked gills.
