I found a pair of these very small white nudibranchs, and a third single one about 20 feet away. This is just outside of Honiara in Solomon Islands. They were in about 8 meters, on algae covered coral rubble.
They were about 12mm long. The white surface was not smooth, but just a little bit bumpy.
I have not found it in any of my books. Do you know it?

It looks like Chromodoris preciosa. The gills are retracted and it is a bit hard to distinguish the red and yellow mantle border, but on the whole I am pretty sure that's what it is.
