The closest I can find is from H. Debelius' Nudibranchs & Sea Slugs Indo Pacific Field Guide pg 167 - Thuridilla indopacifica.
Is this correct or is it some other species?
Locality: Exmouth Gulf, Western Australia, Indian Ocean
Depth: 7 m. Length: 5 mm. 29 December 2004
silty bottom; on underside of rock covered with algae

Yes this is Thuridilla indopacifica. It is not quite as spectacularly coloured as in Debelius's photo but is almost identical to a photo in Gosliner (1987 - photo 46, Elysia sp. 1) which Gosliner identifies as this species in his description of it (Gosliner, 1995). Nice to get another species to add to the Forum.
