Chromodoris dianae from Anilao, Philippines
Identification verified by Terry Gosliner
 

Identification is verified by Terry Gosliner, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Marli Wakeling: I know that others are seaprating this out as Chromodoris sp. I think, as does Dave Behrens, that this is Chromodoris dianae, named for his wife. It all depends on whether, as taxonomists, they are "lumpers" or "splitters". What is unusual here is the lack of colour on the gills.
