I thought you may be interested in this record of Dendrodoris rainfordi.
It was caught in a seine net (yes, the sampling was for fish, not nudis!) on the sandy, vegetation-free banks of Bullock Creek - which is located in Pumicestone Passage, Moreton Bay, Queensland. 16 July 2002, water 15 degrees. The nudibranch was measured at 12cm total length and was released at site of capture.

- and please thank the fishos for taking a photo. I am surprised how few records there are of this fairly large animal. I have included a close-up of the mantle to show the pattern. It looks like the notes I take at a boring meeting - every little pattern is different!
