Here are some photos of Chromodoris verrieri from the Gulf of Oman. I found it at a dive site called "Decorator Bay" in Bandar Khairan, near Muscat, Oman.
Locality: "Decorator Bay" in Bandar Khairan, near Muscat, 15 metres, Oman, Gulf of Oman, 01 March 2007, Silty reef. Length: 20 mm. Photographer: Brian Mayes.
It was in a hurry to get somewhere fast and covered quite a bit of ground while I photographed it. I'm not sure how common these are in this region, but hopefully it will add to your database

Thanks for this. It is very similar to a specimen from the Red Sea that Oren Lederman has sent us [message #13211]. I suggested then that it was strange to have a C. verrieri with a the yellow inner marginal band broken into a series of spots. Even more unusual was the brown spotting on the mantle, the larger spots each being in a translucent zone lacking white pigmentation, more reminiscent of C. preciosa. Your animal is much the same, and I am beginning to doubt that it is C. verrieri, but in C. preciosa there is a distinct white margin outside the red and yellow bands.
Another similarity is Chromodoris alius, which has an almost identical brownish spotting on the mantle. It differs in having a purple rather than a red border. I'll leave your animal as C. verrieri, but I somehow doubt it is that species.
