Phyllidiella lizae from Kosrae, Micronesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is a very important photo because it shows mating occurring between 2 different species of Phyllidiella – Phyllidiella rudmani (on top) and Phyllidiella lizae (below). This demonstrates cross-species mating does sometimes occur in phyllidiid nudibranchs. It has also been demonstrated in Chromodorididae (Risbecia spp.) and in Aglajidae bubble snails (Chelidonura spp.).
