Also known as: Fryeria rueppelii

There is a bit of orange on the margin but everything looks very white in this photo.
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…
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.
A perfect example, again an endemic species to the Red Sea.
Similar to Phyllidia picta
, but Phyllidia rueppelii
always has gold band at the mantle edge. Phyllidia rueppelii
is endemic to the Red Sea.
