There is a bit of orange on the margin but everything looks very white in this photo.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #13566
Tthe orange margin says it is Phyllidia rueppelii, although I agree with you, the translucence and very high tubercles are like Phyllidia schupporum. Sadly, without seeing where the bum is…

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #2123
This is Fryeria rueppelii, as evidenced by the yellow margin. the specimen is rather darker than normal, but well within the variation for the species.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #2509
A perfect example, again an endemic species to the Red Sea.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2122
Similar to Phyllidia picta, but Phyllidia rueppelii always has gold band at the mantle edge. Phyllidia rueppelii is endemic to the Red Sea.
