Chromodoris sp. from Raja Ampat, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. The simple dorsal pattern of black lines is like that seen in Chromodoris lochi, but the sky blue colour (instead of white in Chromodoris lochi) and yellow-orange rhinophores and gills (instead of pale pink as in Chromodoris lochi) are consistently different. So I agree with Kuiter and Debelius (in their new book Nudibranchs of the World page 176) that this is an undescribed species.
