Aeolidia sp. from Ambon, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. I use this family and genus because the cerata are arranged in transverse rows and the front border of the foot is not extended into propodial tentacles. I do not recognise the species, but evidently it is one that can autotomise (= cast off) its cerata easily – this has happened to the individual with the transparent white back. It has autotomised all its cerata except for a just two at the outermost edge of one row perhaps when it was being handled for the photo.
