Strange markings behind the rhinophores.

The photographer is correct, this was called rubropapulosa before.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #260
This is a rather pale form of the common Indo-West Pacific species.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #375
Lovely photo!

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #804
This is certainly common in the west Pacific.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #3825
An adult individual in the process of eating a Chromodoris westraliensis whole.

Since this photo was taken in Western Australia, it would be Chromodoris westraliensis for sure (this species is nearly indistinguishable from Chromodoris annae which occurs in the tropical Indo-Pacific).
