Also referred to as Cuthona sibogae in some circles. This aeolid nudibranch has yellow-and-purple-tipped cerata, the rest of which is the same lighter hue as its dorsum. The slender, tapering rhinophores are also a deep shade of purple. The oral tentacles are more violet in color.
Spotted this beauty inside a cave (off the southern coast of Big Ligid Island, Samal, Philippines) at a depth of 18m. It was on a hydroid, apparently feeding. It measured about 3cm long.
