Last year I did my internship in the National Aquarium in the Dominican Republic, where I continued to search for nudibranchs. I found this one crawling over Thalassia testudinum, at 4 m of depth, in the southern coast of my country.
It is 1.5 cm long and although it is transparent, the edge of the body is light yellow. You can see the white dots all over the body and that the rhinophores have a few rings on them. The animal has many dark brown transversal lines (like the pattern of a tiger) covering all the dorsal region, but unfortunately you cannot see that on this photo.
I have put a lot of effort in finding this one, but no luck so far.... any ideas?

It certainly looks distinctive - hopefully someone will recognise it
