Ovula ovum from Puerto Galera, Philippines
Identification verified by Felix Lorenz
 

Identification is verified by Felix Lorenz, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from the photographer: This was a night dive in 50 feet of water. It is about 1/2 long. I think it might be a cowrie but want to confirm it is not a nudibranch.
