This is an animal I am calling Hypselodoris cf. maculosa. It has similarities in colour and mantle gland arrangement to H. maculosa but in other ways looks very similar to two Hawaiian endemic species, H. peasei and H. bertschi. I can't say much more other than I think this is the first record of it from your side of the Indian Ocean. We really need to know something about its anatomy.
