Dear Chris,
This is indeed a species of Glossodoris - one that I am calling Glossodoris sp. 14 at present as it does not have a name. It looks as though it is feeding on the purple sponge it is on, but there is no sign of the mouth or buccal bulb being everted so I suspect it is just crawling over it.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
