Attached is a species similar to Phyllaplysia padinae. I found 3 specimens at a same spot. These are same size and same in color (many dark dots). The shape of this species looks like that of Dolabrifera dolabrifera, but I have never seen a color form like this.
I can see some papillae(a few with multiple tips) and a shell, small dark brown mottle and a larger white patch.
15mm long, on the rope of a fish preserve, at Kerama Is. near Okinawa.

It does indeed look very like P. padinae. Unfortunately we know very little about this group of Sea Hares in the Indo-West Pacific so it is very difficult to suggest names for them. I think at present it best just to accumulate them on this Phyllaplysia spp. Page until someone revises them for us.
