Dear Bill,
In answer to your comments to my last message, here are 3 more colour variants of (what I think to be Nembrotha mullineri) from one dive at the Philippines, Negros Oriental Island, Lipayo, divesite "Pier", 03 March 2001 (same dive as the one with the mating pair). I think with the shots I sent with a separate message they show an almost pure brown variant (which looks like a wrong colored Nembrotha milleri), a variant with very dark cream spots and some variants with brighter cream spots.

Upper Right: 64mm, 15m depth
Lower Left: 66mm, 14m depth
Lower Right: 58mm, 16m depth
