Genus Reticulidia:

Reticulidia halgerda Brunckhorst & Burn 1990. Black body, raised orange ridges with white borders are distinctive. Similar to Halgerda spp., but lack the circum-anal gills of the latter. Fiji image. 

Family Polyceridae, Polycerid Dorids: Western Indian Ocean to Western Pacific; mostly tropical, some temperate. Many distinctive colored species. Characterized by elongated bodies, with gills on elevated part of their backs, short/slender mantles (with foot behind it). Their chemo- and tactical-sensory apparatus (rhinophores) are almost always branching (foliaceous). Feed on bryozoans, ascidians, cnidarians, other Nudibranchs... Genera Nembrotha, Roboastra, Tambja can be distinguished only by dissection: radula and sex organs in particular. Larger animals (up to 15 cm.) for nudi.s... use their narrow, extendable throats as a suction pump in feeding (rather than as a scraping radula)... easier than many nudi.s therefore to care for in captivity. Possible Aiptasia feeders.

Nembrotha cristata  N. Sulawesi (Lembeh Strait)
