I'm trying to find an ID for a nudibranch I found on the weekend. It looks like Thecacera sp. 2, it is entirely yellow but has no black markings at all.
Locality: Exmouth Gulf, 5 metres, Western Australia, Indian Ocean, 26 November 2006, Sandy bottom. Length: 6 mm. Photographer: Mary Gudgeon.

I would tend to agree that it is Thecacera sp. 2 without any black spots. If you look at other photos of black-spotted members of this species you will see there is a very large ribbed structure at the base of each rhinophore. I suspect it is of sensory function. Your animal has also got this unusual structure which makes me think its the same species.
