I can't identify this nudibranch. Songpol Amnartsingh found it at Ko Sak Pattaya, Thailand. He didn't record date and depth.

I have suggested in earlier messages that this is a spotted form of Chromodoris striatella. I think it is also what has been described as a separate species, Chromodoris mandapamensis, from India. Until we have some more information on these animals - what do they eat? what do their egg masses look like etc I can't really say whether you should call it C. striatella or C. mandapamensis.
