Phyllidia coelestis from Aur - Dayang, Malaysia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: It is Phyllidia coelestis, not Phyllidia varicosa. It does not have the pustules arranged into longitudinal ridges on its dorsum and I guarantee, if turned over, it would not have a series of longitudinal dashes on the foot sole (Phyllidia varicosa has the ridges dorsally and the stripe on the foot sole).
