Gymnodoris bicolor from Watamu, Kenya
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This species is characterised by the row of papillae on the oral veil and by the genital aperture being level with the front of the gills (visible in this photo as a pigmentless patch on the side of the body) – this is a most unusual rearward position that is unique in dorid nudibranchs.
