The pink background, occasional yellow tipped warts, and orange rhinophores are all characteristics of Phyllidia elegans, and that is what this species could be. However, it seemed different enough from that species from the Marshalls and from Pohnpei that we decided to keep it separate for now. Our two specimens came from Tulaghi Pinnacle, Nggela, on 1 April 1994 and from Mbokonmbeti pinnacle, Nggela, on 3 April 1994.
