Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #16384
The "pink-bumped" group of phyllidiids is also a difficult one. My first impression of this one is to call it Phyllidiopsis fissuratus, since it is very similar to specimens I am calling that species in the Marshalls. I can't quite see the rhinophores, which in Phyllidiopsis fissuratus have both pink and black portions.
