Pleurobranchus caledonicus from Saipan, Nthn. Mariana Islands
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: I think this is what was recently posted on the Sea Slug Forum as Pleurobranchus caledonicus. See http://www.seaslugforum.net/showall.cfm?base=pleucale. The middorsal brown spot seems to be characteristic. It has a wide distribution including the Marshall Islands (see http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/notaspideans/e151.htm) and Hawaii (http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/hawaii/hn07.htm).

 

Comment from the photographer: In 25' of water on a sponge covered rock on a night dive in the Grotto.
