Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #15010
Is probably Doriopsilla albopunctata, but it is difficult to separate it from the much rarer Baptodoris mimetica without being able to see the branchial plumes (upright in Baptodoris mimetica, spreading in Doriopsilla albopunctata) or the foot (narrow in Baptodoris mimetica, wide in Doriopsilla albopunctata) or labial tentacles (digitiform in Baptodoris mimetica, lacking in Doriopsilla albopunctata).
