Hermodice carunculata from Canary Islands, Spain
Identification verified by Leslie Harris
 

Identification is verified by Leslie Harris, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Leslie Harris: That's the gorgonian predator Hermodice carunculata and it's reported from the Mediterranean to the Indo Pacific. There's some debate as to whether it's really one species or a complex of morphologically similar species. It will take DNA analysis to resolve the issue.
 

Comment from the photographer: this is not a nudi
