Hypselodoris zephyra from North East Coast, Taiwan
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is Hypselodoris zephyra if one defines that species as having essentially straight lines (as opposed to diagonal lines in Hypselodoris nigrostriata) and lacks a yellow marginal band (as opposed to possessing a band in Hypselodoris nigrostriata). But, as I have commented on previously, I think these characters intergrade and they are the same species.
 

Thanks to Dave Morgan for suggesting identification for this species
