Spurilla cf. neapolitana from Sesimbra, Portugal
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from the photographer:
I'm convinced this is a juvenile Spurilla neapolitana. I'm more used to see larger animals in the summer, probably with more (or more active) zooxanthellae in their tissues.

Another shot of the same specimen. Cerata curled like in Babakina anadoni, but too pale.
