Français : Le Glaucus atlanticus ( aussi nommé glaucus atlantique ou glauque, ou encore "lézard" nudibranche) est une limace de mer, aux couleurs dans les tons de blanc, gris perle et bleu, qui s'alimente principalement d'hydrozoaires, tels la physalis ( vessie de mer), dont elle stocke les nématocystes, ce qui lui confère un pouvoir urticant la protégeant des prédateurs. On doit à Georg Forster sa première description scientifique en 1777. Photo d'un spécimen échoué sur la plage de Bronte, Sydney, Nouvelle-Galles du Sud, Australie.
