I took this picture in June 2003 in about 20m depth at Kirby's Rock in Anilao, Philippines. Is this nudibranch Durvilledoris similaris?
Thanks for your answer.

This nice photo sjows its sponge food very clearly. It certainly looks quite like Durvilledoris similaris, but as its name implies, there are a number of very 'similar' looking species. This is Pectenodoris trilineata. See the Noumea purpurea Colour Group Page to compare this species with others of similar colour.
