Thuridilla? sp. e733

This specimen found and photographed by Marissa Brown in a shallow reef quarry at night resembles Thuridilla flavomaculata in the green color with small orange dots and white pustulose patches, but the vivid orange anterior end and foot are very unusual.

Another photo by Jay Lord shows more of the animal's side.

Another was in the Kwajalein reef quarry in February 2016.

This one crawled out of an algae sample brought in from Kwajalein lagoon.
