Plocamopherus maculapodium from Anilao, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This dorid nudibranch is characterised by the three pairs of globe-bearing lateral appendages, and by the line of small white spots joining the lateral proceses and forming a ring behind the gills (nicely shown in this photo). Plocamopherus maculapodium was previously only known from Zanzibar and Papua New Guinea, so this photo represents a new locality record for the Philippines.
