Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: A very peculiar chromodorid that is endemic to southern temperate Australia with pustules all round the margin of its mantle. It is very well camouflaged on its sponge food. Verconia verconis has a variety of colours – most often pink (as in this photo), but rarely orange or yellow.
