An undescribed species.
It is not Aldisa pikokai
(which is endemic to Hawaii) because it does not have any raised ridges or white radial streaks on the mantle.
This is indeed an Aldisa, but I do not think it yet has a specific name. Probably Aldisa sp.
would be best for this one.
This is the Red Sea Aldisa (or Paradoris), the phyllidiid mimic.
This is either Aldisa sp.
or paradoris sp. It mimics phyllidiids and you can just see the gills at the back!
This is not Aldisa pikokai
because that species has 3 central ‘pits’ that are much smaller in size, and there are reticulate ridges on the flanks of the mantle.
Probably a new species.
