Platydoris formosa from Manado, Indonesia
Identification verified by Richard Willan

Comment from Richard Willan: In answer to this particular question, I have to say the distinction between Platydoris formosa and P. cinerobranchiata is very confused at the moment. These differences are far more complicated than one species having red rhinophores, and this year I have seen a manuscript considering the differences. This paper is not published yet. It is best to leave this photo as P. formosa for now.
