Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: An extraordinary albino individual. I have seen other Phyllidia ocellata from Thailand that are almost completely white, but never one like this.
 

Thanks to Lawrence Neal and Juergen for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Clearly a Phyllidiiae but is completeley white with light brown rhinopores.
 

Comment from Lawrence Neal: White variety, often seen in the Gulf of Thailand in particular
Comment from Juergen: this ocellata was now found twice in pulau tioman, malaysia on a divesite called tiger reef but nowhere to be found in ID books with that coloration: https://www.facebook.com/album.php?id=658932712&aid=268513#!/photo.php?fbid=10150112634387713&set=a.10150112633102713.268513.658932712&theater
