Aplysia reticulata is red-brown to olive-green flecked with white. The parapodia are tall and ruffled.
Some pictures of this species are identified in IPN at page 58 as Aplysia pulmonica  Gould, 1852, which was described from Hawaii, though pictures of specimens from Hawaii look pretty different.
They were at Nudi Pixel as Aplysia kurodai  Baba, 1937, this website is down, the pictures ard gone. Specimens of Aplysia kurodai from Japan also look pretty different.
The identification of the above specimens was confirmed by Matt Nimbs (pers. comment on 12 July 2020) who is working on the family Aplysiida.
