Hypselodoris infucata from Bali, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: Clearly the presence of dark purple on the rhinophoral stalks isn’t a consistent character for only Hypselodoris kanga because some of these animals in this batch of Hypselodoris infucata have them too (photos #2380, #131, #1718, #0238). So the shape of the gills and spots on the gills are the best characters to tell them apart.
 

Congratulation to Monica to have this photo chosen for Neville Coleman's Nudibranchs Encyclopedia book cover. Please note that the correct location is Bali instead of Seychelles
