I'm having some difficulty identifying this nudibranch that I found under Rapid Bay Jetty [Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia] in January 2004. Depth was about 4 metres and water temp was 20 degrees. This animal was about 3cm long.
I thought it could be the species Chromodoris ambiguus. Is this identification correct?

This is Mexichromis macropus which is characterised by the radial orange lines around the mantle edge and the pointed papillae, often tipped in purple. I named this species macropus after the genus name for the kangaroo, as the first specimens I had came from Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
