Phidiana bourailli from Lembeh, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual was subject to a massive predator attack some time ago and, at the time of the attack, it cast off (autotomised) most of its cerata leaving only a few close the dorsal midline. The autotomised cerata have all started to regrow and they appear as short, brown, buds.
