I'm pretty certain they based a Star Wars character on this octopus.

Phyllidiopsis pipeki... yes I'm a nerd. So what!?

A crazy new species of nudibranch that not even Jayson has ever seen in the bay before, nor does it appear exactly in my Nudibranch Behaviour book (my brother is saying NERD!). The best I can assume is that he is an Aegires serenae; a Western pacific dorid nudibranch. Interestingly we are on the wrong side of the Philippines to be in the Western pacific....

Yes, I know you've already seen him, but he definitely fits with the theme!
