Phyllidia ocellata from Koh Tao, Thailand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An extraordinarily atypical individual without any black pigment on the mantle whatsoever. A second individual of this remarkable colour form is shown on page 265 of Nudibranchs of the World by Helmut Debelius and Rudie Kuiter. That individual was also from the Gulf of Thailand.
 

Comment from the photographer: I need help in identifying this species. It loons like a Phyllidia species.
