Chromodoris naiki from Similan Islands, Thailand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This chromodorid nudibranch is characterised by its pustulose mantle, by the greenish grey mantle with opaque white speckles over the central area, by the black and reddish golden spots in clusters laterally on the mantle, and by the yellowish or greyish gills with white speckles. It is a rare species, presently only known from the northern Indian Ocean, from India and the Andaman Sea.
