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.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #7828
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.
