Moridilla brockii from Maldives
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: Look very carefully at the tips of the cerata, especially the biggest (white-tipped) ones close to the midline, and you will see they are coiled tightly inwards like young fern fronds. The uncoil rapidly and wave around when the individual is disturbed.
 

Thanks to Michael Henke for suggesting identification for this species
