Geitodoris heathi? from California

Hi Bill,
Saw what I think was Geitodoris heathi munching on an unknown sponge on a deep pinnacle outside of Point Lobos, California, recently. Depth was about 50M. The slug is maybe 50mm in length.

Thanks Clinton,
From past experience I think I will wait for some Californian expert to comment on the identity of this animal. It looks too much like "sea lemon" territory - and I have been lost there before.
