Phyllidia carlsonhoffi from Saipan, Nthn. Mariana Islands
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual has more white pigment on the mantle than I have seen before. To be absolutely sure this individual is indeed Phyllidia carlsonhoffi and not the similar looking Phyllidia madangensis, a detailed image would need to be taken of the head (Phyllidia madangensis has a small tubercle immediately in front of each rhinophoral pocket, whereas Phyllidia carlsonhoffi has none) and also of the under surface (Phyllidia madangensis has a median longitudinal black line, whereas Phyllidia carlsonhoffi has none).
