I am clueless as regards this nudibranch. It was perched on a whitish whip coral looking frond.
Locality: Hlukela, Transkei, SOUTH AFRICA - 18m

Note added 21 May 2007: This is Lecithophorus capensis.
A dorid on a whip coral, by which I presume you mean a gorgonian, is not something that rings a bell. I don't know of a dorid that associates with, or eats, gorgonians. It is possible it was just passing by, but I'm afraid its shape doesn't give me many clues.
Hopefully someone will have an idea. I don't like consigning species to the 'unidentified' page.
