Placida dendritica from Cape Town, South Africa
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This species supposedly has a very wide distribution in most temperate seas around the world, a distribution that could have been aided by accidental transportation on ship’s hulls. The taxonomy of all these species needs careful reassessment.
