Halgerda cf. elegans from Bali, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: It is definitely not Halgerda iota (which is only known from the Indian Ocean) or Halgerda willeyi and it seems to have to many mid-dorsal ridges to be Halgerda elegans, so I am not really sure what it is. Much of the problem with identifying species of Halgerda are that the limits of intraspecific colour variation are not understood at present – they are very considerable if one judges by Halgerda aurantiomaculata.
