Limacia clavigera from Cape Town, South Africa
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: This is Limacia clavigera, which originates from north east Europe! It feeds on encrusting bryozoans but not a particular species, and appears to be frequently recorded from South Africa but not from anywhere else in the Indian Ocean, presumably because of temperature limitations.
