Comment from Richard Willan on photo #23459
This is the single most significant photo of this phyllidiid I have ever seen. It shows conclusively that Phyllidia babai and Phyllidia willani are variations of a single species.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #12044
Probably, although I cannot see a pale yellow mantle margin.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9790
A nice photo of a typical individual.

Phyllidia babai or Phyllidia willani. A juvenile individual.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2228
A typical individual. This species is characterised by the translucent granular white dorsum, black rings with a central white simple pustule, and thin yellow band at the mantle margin. All these features are shown nicely in this photo.
