Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #31742
This one's likely been eating some red eggs for its cerata to be so bright.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #24546
Note the white speckles on the body, rhinophores and cerata and, most characteristically, the intense dark purple spot immediately below the apex of each ceras. This individual has extremely small purple spots, but they are present nonetheless.
