Hi Bill,
Here's a shot of Platydoris speciosa taken in Anilao, Luzon Island, Philippines in April, 2004. I noticed you don't currently have a page for this species.

Dear Jeff,
I had been planning a page on Platydoris speciosa, but as a recent review shows (Dorgan, Valdes & Gosliner, 2002) the earliest name for this species appears to be Platydoris ellioti. I don't suppose you have a shot somewhere of the underside? The colour pattern on the underside is quite distinctive in many of these species but understandably, it is seldom photographed.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
