Chromodoris trimarginata from Phuket, Thailand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This dorid nudibranch is very similar to Chromodoris preciosa in having a tricoloured (white, red, gold) mantle edge, but inside that there is a broad zone of opaque white mantle glands and the central area has large reddish brown spots. This is a nice photo of a typical individual.
 

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Same mantle edge as Chromodoris albopunctata, but mantle colour and rhino/gills do not match.
