Phyllidiella granulata from Kosrae, Micronesia
Identification verified by Scott Johnson

Comment from Scott Johnson: Another tough one that doesn't really fit any of the known species. It looks kind of like something between Phyllidiella granulata and Phyllidiopsis pipeki. If it were a bit brighter pink, I'd go with Phyllidiopsis pipeki, but I think I'd call this a form of Phyllidiella granulata, even though it doesn't exactly match Brunckhorst's original description. It is similar to Phyllidiella granulata I have seen in Pohnpei; in those specimens, the granular appearance of the gray areas was visible in the actual specimen, but did not show up on my own images captured from video.
 

Comment from the photographer: Found at Split Rock.
