Phyllidiopsis phiphiensis from Thailand

Dear Bill,
Here are some more from Thailand: I am pretty sure both are Phyllidiopsis phiphiensis Brunckhorst, 1993.

They are from the Phi Phi Islands in Thailand!

Dear Eriwn,
They certainly look like P. phiphiensis to me and the Phi Phi Islands is definitely the right place to find them.
