Thank you very much for your comment on Chromodoris alius.
Here is an animal looks a bit similar to Thorunna furtiva but I think this is different species. These rhinophore stalks are translucent and the clubs are light orange with white edgings. At the mantle edge is a band of dark red and inside this a submarginal band of orange-yellow.
This small beauty is 6mm long, found at 5m depth, at Kerama Is., near Okinawa.
Could you help me to identify this for me?

Your small 'beauty' is a juvenile of Chromodoris verrieri which is found throughout the tropical Indo-West Pacific.
The only photo of an adult I can find is the one I have put at the top of the page from Tanzania with a very strange malformation to the mantle. Another one to add to the list on the Growth abnormalities Page.
There are a number of species with very similar colour patterns to Chromodoris verrieri which I will try an add to the Forum in the near future including, Chromodoris trimarginata, Chromodoris preciosa, Chromodoris sinensis,Chromodoris rubrocornuta and Chromodoris galactos.
