Dear Bill,
Here is a photo of Phyllidia babai. I have seen this animal only two times diving in Jeju area. Could you give me more information?
Thank you very much for your great help.

Dear Dong Bum,
This certainly fits the description of Phyllidia babai. However I still wonder whether this is just a colour form of the highly variable Phyllidia ocellata in which the yellow background colour is absent
Best wishes
