Aplysia argus Rüppell & Leuckart 1830

Aplysia argus

provided by wikipedia EN

Aplysia argus is a species of gastropod mollusc in the genus Aplysia, native to the Indo-Pacific region.

Description

This species has long been confused with Aplysia dactylomela (living in the Atlantic Ocean) because they are morphologically very similar, but genetic studies have shown that those found in the Indo-Pacific are indeed a distinct species [1]
