Chromodoris hintuanensis from Bali, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual is recognisable as Chromodoris hintuanensis by the dark rings around (some of ) the pustules in the centre of the mantle. It is atypical of the species though in that the caps of the pustules are yellow rather than cream as is typical. Perhaps its similarity to Risbecia pulchella, which also occurs at this locality, is not accidental. They are probably closely related (maybe even in the same genus), or they could be part of a mimicry ring.
