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.

Chromodoris albonares is quite a small species has only an orange band around the edge of the mantle and (especially large) white rhinophores and white gills.

Chromodoris preciosa is a relatively larger species has three colour bands right next to each other - a thin white band at the edge, then a band of deep red, and inside that a band of yellow. Also, the gills and rhinophores are reddish.
