Nembrotha juvenile(?) from Northern Sulawesi

Hi Bill,
This looks like a Nembrotha kubaryana that changed its spots from green to orange! There is no orange trim on the mantle, however. Any ideas?

Location: Nudi Falls, Lembeh Straight, North Sulawesi, Indonesia
Date: July, 2002
Depth: 40 feet
Length: 5mm

Dear Marli.
I suspect this is Nembrotha guttata. See Julie Marshall's message from the Great Barrier Reef
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
