Halgerda albocristata from Asan, Guam
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is a very interesting individual in which the flanks of the mantle have black specks that are not clearly aligned in radial rows. In typical individuals, there are black radial lines. The network of white pigment on the tubercles in the central area of the mantle that is characteristic of Halgerda albocristata are obvious in this individual.
 

Thanks to Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: see Gosliner et al. 2008 and Sea Slug Forum, particularly photos from Nthn Marianas Islands
