Trapania japonica from Koh Rong, Cambodia
Identification verified by Richard Willan

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. This species is similar to Trapania naeva, but this one has very long extra-rhinophoral and extra-branchia processes that are gold. By contrast, in Trapania naeva the processes are relatively short, and the same chocolate brown colour as the blotches on the mantle.


Thanks to Erwin Koehler for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Erwin Koehler: This specimen looks identical to the Hong Kong specimen at the Sea Slug Forum
