Comment from Richard Willan on photo #3883
This dorid nudibranch is characterised by the uniformly opaque purple mantle with a broad white marginal band, and orange rhinophores and gills. By contrast, Hypselodoris bullockii has a more translucent mantle, narrower white marginal band and especially a raised branchial pocket.
