Late last year I sent you a couple of images for ID that you confirmed as Petalifera ramosa. That week of diving was the most prolific I had seen in 10 years at Fly Point [Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia]. I used mainly slide film and have only recently had them scanned.
Of the 25+ species I saw there were 5 that I have been unable to ID. Attached is the first, which I am hoping you can ID.

This is Dendrodoris miniata. A widepread species throughout the Indian Ocean and West Pacific, it ranges in colour from almost cream, through yellow to bright orange. The bright white reticulate pattern is usually present to some extent but in some case it can be entirely absent.
See the top of the page for a range of colour forms.
