Phyllidia elegans from Saipan, Nthn. Mariana Islands
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: This is another one of those that seems to inhabit the range of variation between a couple of different species. I lean towards Phyllidia elegans for this one. I have some very similar ones identified as such at http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/porostomes/e301.htm (first picture) from the Marshalls.
