Phyllaplysia sp. 01 is characterized by its green colour with yellowish/green longitudinal lines and a few white spots, which have in some specimens branched white papillae. It is as Phyllaplysia sp. (no number) in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 103 center, which writes size: 60 mm, the above specimen #1 (pictures #1 - #3) approx. 4 cm. Let me quote: "Exclusively on the sea grass Enhalus acoroides; during the day deep at the base of sea grass blades, emerges at night."
There are pictures of this species online from SE Sulawesi, Indonesia, Lembeh Strait, Indonesia, and from Singapore.
The website NUDIPIXEL is down, that is the pictures of this species from Flores, Indonesia, from Andaman & Nicobar Islands, India,
and from Piti Channel, Guam are gone.
