Nembrotha cristata from Malapascua, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: At this time we really do not know the extent of colour variation in all species of Nembrotha. It would be wrong to say this particular individual is a different (undescribed) species just because of the dark maroon (instead of black) body and white (instead of green) pustules. Definitely leave it as Nembrotha cristata because the external appearance matches that species most closely.
