Deb Lantis' dorid from Santa Cruz Island looks like Anisodoris nobilis to me, albeit a dark-colored one. The large rounded dorsal tubercles, dark pigment between the tubercles, and the whitish gills are characteristic. The overall color of this species can vary considerably, depending on which sponges an individual has been grazing on (and for how long). I have seen quite a few specimens with bight red-orange ground color, although these have usually been smaller specimens. A. nobilis prefers yellow colored sponges like species of Mycale, but individuals will consume a wide variety of sponges, ranging in color from blue to red to yellow to tan. At Cape Arago, Oregon alone, I found A. nobilis preying on 19 different species of sponges.
