Chromodoris albonares, with bicoloured margin and very white rhinophores and white gills. However, it is currently known only from the Western Pacific, although you have some from Kenya on NudiPixel.

An atypical individual with apricot-orange apices to the rhinophores.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1211
The most distinctive characters are the extra-large, entirely white rhinophores.
