Doriopsilla albopunctata from California, USA
Identification verified by Gary McDonald
 

Identification is verified by Gary McDonald, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Gary McDonald: Is probably Doriopsilla albopunctata, but it is difficult to separate it from the much rarer Baptodoris mimetica without being able to see the branchial plumes (upright in Baptodoris mimetica, spreading in Doriopsilla albopunctata) or the foot (narrow in Baptodoris mimetica, wide in Doriopsilla albopunctata) or labial tentacles (digitiform in Baptodoris mimetica, lacking in Doriopsilla albopunctata).
 

Comment from the photographer: Taken at La Jolla Shores at about 60 feet.
