Strange growth or damage in front of rhinophores.

Great shot showing the front of the foot and oral tentacles.

Damaged front end...

There seems to be a small crustacean on the dorsum.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #15783
An atypical individual with an orange-red (instead of golden) marginal border to the mantle.

Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #70
This one I believe is correct, the only species that I know which it could be confused with is Glossodoris electra whose branchial plumes are orange-brown rather than white.
