Dear Marina,
If anyone out there would like to take responsibility for making sense of these Indian Ocean phyllidiids I would be very grateful. I don't think this is Phyllidiella pustulosa. It has similarities to Phyllidiopsis sinaiensis but from the messages on that page no one seems very sure just what that specis is either.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
