Chromodoris purpurea from Menorca, Spain
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This chromodorid is characterised by the translucent pinkish or bluish white mantle with a broad vivid sharply-defined yellow marginal band and no markings dorsally, or only a few nebulous reddish markings like smudges. Often the row of white mantle glands are visible through the translucent mantle, as are shown in this photo.
