Glossodoris cincta from Egypt
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: I have seen this a number of times from the Red Sea, and think it is one of the several colour forms of Glossodoris cincta. We get two colour forms in the Red Sea, and Nudi Pixel has photos of both.

Thanks to Gary McDonald for suggesting identification for this species

Previously identified by Dr. Richard Willan as Glossodoris sp. His comment: Probably an undescribed species.
 

Seen on seagrass in about 10m, while diving in Taba, Egypt in Nov 2007
