Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert
Comment from Richard Willan: This small phyllidiid (to 15 mm long) is endemic to the Maldive Islands and characterised by 3, mid-dorsal, longitudinal ridges plus a few simple tubercles that are strongest adjacent to the mantle margin. The background colour is dark orange and there are thick, black, longitudinal stripes on either side of the central ridge plus a black ring just outside the outer ridges. The rhinophores are uniformly orange.
Thanks to Mary Jane Adams for suggesting identification for this species
