Attached is a photo of what I believe is Phyllidiopsis fissuratus. Although not visible in the photo, my notes on the specimen report pale pink rhinophores and dark gray gills, with the underside of the mantle light pink with some of the black axial streaks visible. This photo was taken in Hawaii, where I found several specimens along Oahu's north shore at depths of 10 to 20 meters. The specimens were 50 to 60mm in length. I have also found what appears to be the same species here in the Marshall Islands.

It looks like P. fissurata to me. Your photo has captured the 'fissured' nature of the mantle very well.
