Pleurobranchus grandis from Fiji
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual displays an unusual colour pattern with a broad white marginal band. However the arrangement of the pustules on the mantle (one large pustule surrounded by a ring of 6 smaller pustules) and large exhalant ‘siphon’ at the rear when it is crawling actively are characteristic of Pleurobranchus grandis. Like most species of Pleurobranchus, it is a nocturnal species.
