Hypselodoris fontandraui from Portofino, Italy
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: The species of the blue Hypselodoris tricolor species group are not only very difficult to identify but also probably ovesplit taxonomically. Anyway, I identify this individual as Hypselodoris fontandraui because of the pattern of irregular white streaks on the flanks of the mantle. Since the gills are not extended and cannot be seen, gill coloration cannot be used to corroborate this identification.
