Risbecia pulchella from Fujairah, United Arab Emirates
 

Thanks to Gordon T. Smith for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: I thought this might be Risbecia imperialis. It was about 10cm long and at 25 meters depth.
 

Comment from Gordon T. Smith: I frequently find pairs of R. pulchella off the east coast of UAE, and occasionally single ones.
