Phyllidiella pustulosa from Long Dong, Taiwan
Identification verified by Nathalie Yonow
 

Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Nathalie Yonow: I think that is the anal papilla, the black conical protrusion on the far left of the slug. The tubercles are arranged in angular groups, and in a central + lateral series, characteristic of pustulosa.
