Phyllodesmium cf. jakobsenae from Lembeh, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This aeolid nudibranch is characterised by the slightly flattened cerata with brown patches (containing symbiotic zooxanthellae) on each side. It is a good mimic of its host, a soft coral of the genus Xenia. By contrast, Phyllodesmium longicirrum has much larger very flattened cerata with enlarged ends like paddles, and the brown zooxanthellae are arranged in rings.
