Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This small, flattened sea hare (family Aplysiidae) is characterised by the numerous, firm tubercles scattered all over the body. The largest tubercles ones have a white, branched process with numerous white filaments at the summit resembling a sea anemone, that can be extended out (as in this photo) or contracted back into the papilla.
