This type of nudibranch has been spotted in Singapore waters several times. My guess is Tambja oliva?. Hope you can help us id this chap. Thanks a lot.

This is another piece in the Tambja amakusana puzzle. Have a look at my comments about this species in an earlier message [#3545]. Your photo matches what I am calling Tambja sp. 6. but I think we have to consider whether that species, Tambja sp 9, Tambja sp.10 and Tambja cf. amakusana are all colour forms of one species which I guess would be T. amakusana.
