Glossodoris sibogae from Moorea, French Polynesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This chromodorid nudibranch is extremely similar to the very variable Glossodoris atromarginata, but its colour is supposedly “much more intense” with the background being bright brownish yellow as in this photo. More importantly, its radular teeth are only half the size of Glossodoris atromarginata. Glossodoris sibogae is presently only recorded French Polyneisa (where it is very common), Fiji and Indonesia.
