I believe this is a Thuridilla livida from SE Sulawesi. I see that you don't have very many images of this species.

Thanks for another record. As I often say the more photos we get, the better idea we have of variation in a species. Your photo is interesting because it shows the blue pigmentation arrange in a series of elongate patches, rather than a continuous, supporting Skip Pierce's earlier comments about the 'mobility' of some elysiid pigments. It;s alos clear from your photo that the background colour of the animal rather than being described as dark brown or black is better described as translucent grey with a distinct greenish tinge from the internal digestive gland.
