Hi Dr Rudman,
I spotted these nudibranches in the waters off Docmai, Phuket, Thailand. I've gone through a few books for their ID but no such luck yet.
Can you help?

I am pretty sure this is Risbecia ghardaqana. It was previously known only from the Red Sea but we now have records on the Forum of this species and the very similarly coloured Risbecia pulchella from both Thailand and Indonesia. It is a very useful record, helping to comfirm the distribution of this species
