Here is a nudibranch I can't identify. Maybe it's a Cerberilla sp. The picture is by my friend Cedric Mitel. We found it in five metres, the 29 of April 2005, at the Baie des Citrons Beach, in Noumea (New Caledonia). It was 1 cm, and was moving very slowly.
Thank you very mutch to help us to identify this nudibranch.

Yes this is a species of Cerberilla, but it's not a species I recognise from the colour pattern. These animals are probably much more common than we think, but because they spend most of their lives burrowing in sand - at least in daytime - they are not often seen. I'll call this Cerberilla sp. 8 on the Forum.
