Risbecia apolegma from Lembeh, Indonesia
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: I know I described apolegma, but these things can be variable! This is the second time I have seen one with such a sharp border between the pink and white. And, the first time I have seen one with the border missing. I wonder if it was bitten by a fish, or genetic. However, I think the dotted and reticulated texture of the the white band is indicative of Risbecia apolegma, with the orange gills and rhinophores. My largest was 80 mm alive (60 mm in preservative) – this one looks large enough. I wonder what the juveniles look like?
