Half black and half white rhinophores is usually Phyllidiopsis, but this one is certainly a bit strange. maybe Phyllidiella.
I had a photo of something like this in the book also but without a specimen, no idea. The rhinophores are half white and half black, hence Phyllidiopsis.
Difficult to tell, but not Phyllidiopsis krempfi
. It is impossible to see the mantle margin but Phyllidiella nigra
may be closer, or even Phyllidiopsis burni
although it doesn't seem to be red enough for Phyllidiopsis burni
A juvenile individual of either Phyllidiopsis annae
or Phyllidiopsis sphingis
– more probably the latter because of the indications of the black radial bars extending from the outer pair of longitudinal lines towards the mantle edges.
