Chromodoris africana from Malindi, Kenya
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to Dustin Morris for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Dustin Morris: This photo does not really show the distinctive dark smudges connecting the major black lines across the mantle of Chromodoris strigata. Considering the location and there is not blue color of Chromodoris quadricolor, perhaps it is more likely to be Chromodoris africana. Even though there is a hint of white on the mantle edge, it is certainly no more than is shown on many other specimens shown on Nudipixel and confirmed as Chromodoris africana.
