This is Doriopsilla miniata which is found throughout the tropical Indo-West Pacific region. Like species of the related genus Dendrodoris, species of Doriopsilla are suctorial feeders on sponges. They have lost the radular teeth, used by most dorids to scrape or bite off chunks of their food, and instead release digestive juices on to the sponge, near their mouth, and suck up the resulting 'sponge soup'.
