Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #38559
I don't see a dorsal anus, and the black markings are too fine for varicosa, so I think marindica.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #26045
This is a large and very typical individual of this species.

This is marindica, two black lines with rays extending to the margins and of Indian Ocean distribution. (apologies if I have already id-ed this!!)

marindica, with 2 black lines and rays extending to the margins. Indian Ocean distribution.

A perfect example!

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #9644
This looks like Phyllidia marindica, two longitudinal black lines and three rows of orange-tipped tubercles. And within the geographical area.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #5757
This is Fryeria marindica, with the bluish background, and the black in rays to the margin.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2172
Comment from Dr. Richard C. Willan regarding Phyllidia varicosa as it is suggested by the photographer: the pustules are not arranged in longitudinal groups, the anus would be ventral, and there would be no stripe on the foot sole – so it is Phyllidia marindica
