Phyllidia madangensis from Kosrae, Micronesia
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: Could be Phyllidia madangensis, although from specimens I've seen in the Marshalls, it can be impossible to tell Phyllidia madangensis from Phyllidia carlsonhoffi from the dorsum alone. A black line running lengthwise along the middle bottom of the foot would make it Phyllidia carlsonhoffi; lack of that line would make it Phyllidia madangensis. In some areas, Phyllidia madangensis appears to have a small tubercle at the anterior edge of the rhinophore pocket, that does not appear to be the case in the Marshalls, an island group close to Kosrae.
 

Comment from the photographer: Found at Eagle Ray wall.
