Aldisa pikokai from Egypt
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: This has all the external characteristics of Aldisa pikokai including color, number and position of the dorsal craters, dark spots within the craters, crisscrossing network of ridges over the rest of the dorsum. Of course it would take internal examination to be sure, but I think it would be safe to call it pikokai. Egypt is quite a range extension from Hawaii and the Marshall Islands.
 

Comment from the photographer: Another picture of the same slug. As I said I think this may be a type of Aldisa however can't find any that look like this taken in the Red Sea.
