Glossodoris cincta from Koh Tao, Thailand
Identification verified by Scott Johnson
 

Identification is verified by Scott Johnson, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Scott Johnson: Brighter yellow submarginal band than usual.
 

Thanks to Dustin Morris, Eunice Khoo, Stephane Vanhuffel, John McLaughlin, Marli Wakeling, Eric Fly and Christopher Jozef Kopec for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: Approx 6cm long at 17m depth.
The gills were arranged in a distinct counter-clockwise spiral and undulated vigorously (pics and video available).
Similar to C albopunctata except there are no white rings and the mantle and margin pattern is repeated on the foot. Also note the large bump behind the rhinophores.
 

Comment from John McLaughlin: ID from my local colleague. A very rare sighting on Koh Tao.
