Polycera quadrilineata from Sweden
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to João Pedro Silva for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from João Pedro Silva: I think this is Polycera quadrilineata. Although it's almost transparent and some variations of Polycera quadrilineata have darker pigment on the mantle and foot, the yellow markings suggest this may indeed be a lighter variation of this species. It would be clearer to identify if the oral processes were more visible tough. Comment from the photographer: Hi, I think this nudie could be a Limacia clavigera, but I'm not sure. One nice feature of the picture is that you can see the eggs on the opposite side if the leaf the nudie is sitting on.
