I found this slug and two similar ones [message #12158, message #12247] at Okinawa.
Are they Hypselodoris bullocki?

I am pretty sure this is Thorunna purpuropedis. As I said in answer to your first message, there are quite a few species with very similar colour patterns. It is often necessary to dissect them and look at their anatomy and radular teeth before we can be truly sure we have correctly identified them.
