Help! Which leaf-sheep (Costasiella Kuroshimae) lives around the Philippines.

Hi, I've been writing a story that includes drawings where one of the characters is a Costasiella kuroshimae (Leaf-sheep sea slug) that lives off of Romblon Island (Romblon Pass and/or Sibuyan Sea). I've read many articles, looked up hundreds of photos and many videos and there seems to be (at least visually) many variations/species? of the Costasiella Kuroshimae. There are many visual differences such as colour and the shape of their cerata (leaves). I always look at the data and location of the photos but it's not consistent. I love the story that I'm writing and I've been developing the other characters pictorially but I'm stuck as to which leaf-sheep lives near Romblon. I don't want to get it wrong. If anyone knows the answers or where I can find an article/person/expert with these creatures please let me know. Also, I'm in Canada and not able to fly out and see for myself. Thank you!

Less than 1% of the human population will ever get to see a Blue Whale, so I guess that means less than .000001% will ever get to see one breach!

Y'all think octopus could enter the bronze/iron age?

Now I know what you're gonna say, "but you can't use fire underwater",but hydrothermal vents would work perfectly

U(underwater)FO

Took a cruise out of the LA terminal, got out a few miles and next to the ship were these two small objects with lights moving faster than the ship itself. Took me a few seconds to grab my camera, but this is what I captured from the 18th deck. The two lights eventually dove and were not visible, they rose again briefly but not to the surface and are soon not visible again by the end of this 30 second video. Anyone know what these could be?

Sound on! 🔊 We’ve seen their aggressive side, but have you seen their curious side? It’s like they’re trying to talk to us!
