Pleurobranchus forskalii from Manado, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This pleurobranch is definitely a pale coloured form of Pleurobranchus forskalii. By contrast, Pleurobranchus grandis would have a completely different arrangement to its pattern of tubercles (1 large central tubercle surrounded by a ring of 6 smaller tubercles).
