Phenacovolva rosea from Similan Islands, Thailand
Identification verified by Felix Lorenz
 

Identification is verified by Felix Lorenz, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to Bastian Reijnen and Ken Marks for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Bastian Reijnen: Most probably P. rosea, closer examination of shell needed
Comment from Ken Marks: I'm guessing that the pictured animal is not a benthic ctenophore (Coeloplana) as these are virtually allways found on sea stars and not on octocorallians (as pictured). Hard to tell from the photo but I'd guess the pictured critter is more likely a spindle cowrie, possibly Phenacovolva rosea.
