I found a number of these Nudis on my last nightdive. I think they might be Doriopsilla carneola, but I am not sure. Can you confirm this ID, please?

I'm pretty sure this is Doriopsilla carneola. As you will know there are some other similarly coloured species in southern Australia, but the white marks and fairly hidden tubercles are typical of D. carneola.
