Paradoris liturata from Anilao, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is a very interesting and special dorid nudibranch that mimics Phyllidiella pustulosa. The gills are dorsal in Paradoris liturata, but they are retracted into the branchial pocket below the mantle surface in this individual so they are not visible.
