Phyllidia varicosa from Tioman, Malaysia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An unusual individual in which the pustules on the mantle are not clearly grouped into three longitudinal rows. But this could be an artefact of its posture. There is a single large pustule immediately behind each rhinophore (called a rhinotubercle). There is a series of prominent black longitudinal dashes forming a stripe on the foot sole.
