Elysiella pusilla from Bali, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual is feeding on the green seaweed Halimeda macroloba. In fact it has sucked out so much of the green sap from this seaweed that it has gone white!. There is an almost identical image of an individual of this species on page 48 of our book “Undersea Jewels A Colour Guide to Nudibranchs”.
