Polycera maddoxi from Dusky Sound, New Zealand
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This member of the Polyceridae is endemic to New Zealand and previously only known from the 2 type specimens (i.e., holotype plus paratype) plus one photograph. All were from Port Taranaki, New Plymouth, so Dusky Sound represents a major range extension down to Fiordland. This species was described in an issue of a major malacological journal devoted to nudibranchs that I had the pleasure of co-editing.
