Comment from Richard Willan: An undescribed species. This superbly camouflaged nudibranch is living symbiotically on its coral host. The nudibranch’s head is on the left and two of its spawn coils are behind the tail on the right.
 

Comment from the photographer: very well camuflaged on the coral where it lives on the right are the eggs ribbon
