Thanks to Dustin Morris, Jirawat Chatcharkorn, Marli Wakeling and Lindsay Warren for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from Dustin Morris: Although the rhinophores are not visible to know if they are yellow, this looks like Phyllidia elegans.
Comment from Lindsay Warren: Worked on developing the list of opisthobranchs for the Tukang Besi Archipelago (Wakatobi Marine National Park), SE Sulawesi, Indonesia 1996-2000. Am still working on data collected then and new data am collecting now.
