This species was fairly common in the river last autumn and winter, always under rocks in shallow water and quite often in pairs. Is it Anteaeolidiella indica?

Yes this is Anteaeolidiella indica. It has quite a range in colour, at least some of it due to the colour of the sea anemones it feeds on. I am pretty sure the egg ribbon in your photo alongside is from something else, as this species has direct larval development, the eggs being much larger and fewer in number. Then again if you have seen these animals laying this egg ribbon then it may mean there is more than one species, which would make things difficult for us taxonomists.
