With reference to Bill Bolland's message about the new species Kaloplocamus peludo I have found four specimens of this species at Heron Island [Great Barrier Reef]. They were found under dead coral slabs at the reef crest at low tide or on bryozoans attached to grids covering saltwater intake pipes. Attached is a photo of one of them which originally appeared in the book by Richard Willan and myself on the Nudibranchs of Heron Island as Kaloplocamus sp. 1.
Locality: Heron Island, 1 m., Queensland, Australia, Pacific, November 1998, Intertidal. Length: 10 mm. Photographer: Julie Marshall.

I have added a few close-ups of part of your animal to show the 'hairy' nature of the lateral papillae
