Phyllidiella pustulosa from Marsa Alam, Egypt
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: This is a juvenile Phyllidiella pustulosa. My first time, I named it as new, because the small ones always look like this. Then they ‘jump’ to the typical Phyllidiella pustulosa form. I had called it Phyllidia melanocera because the rhinophores were so large and black.
