Chromodoris sp. from Boracay, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This is an extremely interesting individual. It seems to have some black pigment at the very base of the inside of the gill axes which relates it to the western Indian Ocean Chromodoris boucheti. But in true Chromodoris boucheti there are black lines running the full length of both axes. It is probably an undescribed species.
 

Comment from the photographer: unusual black color pattern on top of mantle; shows branching on one of the gills
