Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #15514
This seems to be one of the variations identified by Rudman, who originally described the species. He seems to think it is really variable.

Chromodoris hamiltoni, which usually has more orange centrally but is rather variable in the western Indian Ocean (limited distribution).

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #15715
I can just see a bit of orange in the centre of the back?? If not (any other photos in the series?) then maybe Chromodoris elisabethina.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #15511
Yes, with the orange patches in the middle of the dorsum.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #968
This chromodorid nudibranch is distinguished by the broad salmon-pink to orange marginal band. Not all individuals possess the narrow white band between the salmon-pink band and the outermost black band. It is endemic to the tropical western Indian Ocean.
