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.
 

Thanks to José Antonio Fayos for suggesting identification for this species
