Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Discodorididae sp. 28 is characterized by its mottled greenish-grey colour, by tan tubercles, and by darker rounded depressions with a greyish reticulate pattern. I am not sure if the transcendent thing top right are the gills and I cant locate the rhinophores, maybe hidden between the tubercles or retracted. Possible genera for this species are Atagema  Bergh, 1877 or Sclerodoris  Eliot, 1904.
The photographer Dr. Alicia Hermosillo-González labeled this picture "Hallaxa verde.JPG", the genus Hallaxa  Eliot, 1909 is placed in the family Actinocyclidae  Pruvot-Fol, 1934, it is much more likely to be a Discodorid.
