Phyllidiella lizae from Kosrae, Micronesia
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: I think I would go with Phyllidiella lizae for these. The one on the right closely matches what I am calling Phyllidiella lizae in the Marshalls at http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/porostomes/e396.htm.
 

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Possible mixed species mating.
 

Comment from Marli Wakeling: Left species. There is the distinctive X mark on the right specimen, so it may be P. lizae as well.
