Seems to have lost the orange pigment on the major tubercles.

The orange tubercles are barely visible in the middle row.

This looks more like multifaria with bleached out tubercles. The black pattern with semi-lunar areas containing large tubercles (which should have orange tips) is diagnostic.

This one is Phyllidia multifaria – generally white with black dorsal lines extending as rays to the margins, and usually 3 rows of orange tipped tubercles… Quite variable, sometimes with lots of black.

Phyllidia multifaria (in the Red Sea) – similar to Phyllidia elegans, also has a black line on the sole of the foot.
