This tiny Hypselodoris was found on the Third reef off Negombo. Could it be Hypselodoris carnea? I didn't crop the picture since you might want to identify what this snail seems to be feeding on.
Locality: Third reef, Negombo, 16m, Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean, March 2007, patchy reef 20 km from the coast. Length: 1cm. Photographer: Anouk Houben.

Thanks for not cropping the photo, it certainly gave me a chance to look around for potential food or other details. Unfortunately there was nothing to see on this occasion. This is one of those species in which the gills and rhinophores have orange bands rather than being a single colour.
Hypselodoris maculosa? - another colour variation?
