Dear Bill,
Here is a photograph of opisthobranch I think is Philinopsis depicta. It was taken by Adnan Büyük at Ucadalar, East coast of Turkey. This species is quite variable in colour and pattern. Could you confirm the identification please

Dive site: Uc adalar, Depth: 13-25m. on a grass-sandy bottom.

I would agree with your identification
