Hi Kim - Never seen it.  Looks like a juvenile, so could be an off-colored juvie of a new or known larger species.  It could be a phyllidiid mimic like Pearsonothuria juveniles.  Agree that looks stichopodid. Cheers - Gustav

Hello Kim;

 

What a spectacular animal; never seen anything like it I'm afraid

Guessing is the only thing to do for me: a stichopodid, and a new species!

 

This is a nocturnal animal, correct?

 

Very very nice animal.

 

Best wishes,

Yves
