Gymnodoris impudica from Ningaloo Reef, Australia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An adult individual in the process of eating a Chromodoris westraliensis whole.

Since this photo was taken in Western Australia, it would be Chromodoris westraliensis for sure (this species is nearly indistinguishable from Chromodoris annae which occurs in the tropical Indo-Pacific).
 

Point: Exmouth

Comment from the photographer: 7m, tidal area, silty bottom with coral/limestone structures.
