The spots are somewhat elongated but otherwise characters fit G. cruenta.

The pinkish body is a bit unusual, but the other characters are normal.

This one I believe is correct, it is a pretty distinctive species.

Glossodoris rubroannulata is quite similar in colour to Glossodoris cruenta which differs in having a row of red spots along the inner edge of the white rather than a thin red line along the outer edge.
