Hypselodoris sp. from Koh Phi Phi, Thailand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. This species has some similarities to both Hypselodoris nigrostriata (i.e., diagonal black streaks on the mantle and foot) and Hypselodoris kanga (triangular gills with yellow spot on the front axis), but it is clearly distinct from either of them. It appears to be endemic to the Indian ocean, from the Arabian Sea to the Andaman Sea.
 

Comment from the photographer: Depth 18m

It looks different from the Kanga's on your site?
