Rhinophores
Pair of tentacles or processes posterior to the cephalic tentacles of opisthobranch molluscs. The rhinophores are primarily sensory in function and vary greatly in shape between species, and in dorid nudibranchs can be retracted into basal sheaths (Stachowitsch, 1992; Picton & Morrow, 1994).
