Hypselodoris nigrostriata from Bali, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: The striped Hypselodoris in your photo is Hypselodoris nigrostriata because the lines are more or less oblique. In the very similar species, Hypselodoris zephyra the lines are parallel. I thought they were the same species, but then Rudie Kuiter showed me a lot of his pictures from Bali where both species seem to occur together and he has made a strong argument that they are separate in the new book Nudibranchs of the World. So I haven’t made up my mind yet. One other character supposedly only possessed by Hypselodoris nigrostriata is a yellow border to the mantle. I really cannot see this yellow band in the animal in your picture, so maybe that character is no good?
