Comment from Richard Willan on photo #32016
This is an important new record for the Philippines. The black bases of the gills are characteristic of Chromodoris boucheti. Incidentally, the genital organs are everted on the right side.

The black on the gills, and the orange gills and rhinophores point to boucheti. The irregular orange paches around the margin is not uncommon. This is a first record for the East African coast.
