nudibranch is obviously any branch that appears in public without its bark in place and is willing to display its bush.
Numen - the opposite of oldmen.

Diane is also the winner of the Smarty Pants Award as she knew the correct definition of nudibranch.
numen - n. divine or supernatural power of presence. esp. as associated with a particular place or objet.
nudibranch - n. any shell-less marine gastropod mollusk of the suborder Nudibranchia, having external, often branched respiratory appendages.

Nudibranchs, also known as sea slugs, are soft-bodied marine snails belonging to the suborder Nudibranchia, the largest suborder of the order Opisthobranchia. There are more than 3,000 described species.
