Nembrotha purpureolineata

This Nembrotha purpureolineata nudibranch is chowing down on it's prey, the yellow lined ascidian, a type of sea squirt that is quite commonly seen around Sydney.  It has everted its oral tube into the cavity of the sea squirt to get at the best bits.  There were three of these in a small area on the dive at site called the steps at the entrance to Sydney's Botany Bay.

Incredibly cool image; even more so given your description, which sounds ugly but is contrasted by the undeniable beauty of this frame.
