Phyllidiopsis sinaiensis from Egypt
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This nice photo of an actively crawling individual shows just how close this species is to the Indo-Pacific Phyllidiopsis krempfi. Importantly, the mid-dorsal ridge is clearly interrupted in this individual. So the great similarity with Phyllidiopsis krempfi cannot be denied, and I strongly agree with those who think they are the same species.
