Phyllaplysia sp. 01 is characterized by its green colour with yellowish/green longitudinal lines and a few white spots. It is as Phyllaplysia sp. (no number) in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 103 center, which writes size: 60 mm, the above specimen 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, Flores, Indonesia, Lembeh Strait, Indonesia, Piti Channel, Guam,
Andaman & Nicobar Islands, India, and from Singapore.
