Identification is verified by Nathalie Yonow, Nudi Pixel expert

Thanks to Jirawat Chatcharkorn and Marli Wakeling for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: This was photographed on a wreck (known locally as the Medafaru) off Colombo. Depth was around 18 meters on the ships structure. I've seen many nudibranchs off Colombo but this is the first time I've seen this species. Any idea on genus/species would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers
Naren
