Phyllidia nudibranch

Phyllidia spp. (varicosa? elegans?)

Description:

The mantle of these oval nudibranchs is flattened dorsoventrally and its dorsal surface is covered with hard, colored tubercles. This mantle is decorated with contrasting colors and patterns as warning signals to predators.

Habitat:

Most species occur in the tropical Indo-Pacific region.

Notes:

For most Phyllidias I have spotted in Philippines I have no idea of the species. They look too much alike to the inexpert eye (my eye).
