This one was found in 5 metres crawling over reef, Espiritu Santo Is., Vanuatu. 1998. It was 6cm long.
This is Phyllidiopsis fissuratus. Previously only known from Fiji and tropical eastern Australia, Erwin Koehler has also found it in the Philippines. Your report from Vanuatu is an interesting, if not unexpected find.
