Thanks Erwin,
Bob's animal is what I am calling Chromodoris cf. colemani, It differs from C. hamiltoni in the number of longitudinal lines and in the orange border which is probably best described as submarginal. See Bernard Picton's earlier discussion on this. - Another lose end I'm afraid, but not as loose as a population of C. hamiltoni in the central Pacific.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
