I found a new Hoplodoris about 35-40 mm. I think it is a Hoplodoris flammea for it's red central notum color.
On the Forum, apparently knows only from Bali (Gosliner 2003), we can add Reunion Island to the distribution list if you confirm identification.
Locality: Rocky coast, Etang-Salé, 0,30 metres, Reunion Island, Indian Ocean, 17 february 2007, Raining. Length: 35 mm. Photographer: Hugues Flodrops.
I'm sorry for the only photo on natural environnement but my batteries were empty.The others photos are taken on a mirror in one red box.
Thanks another time for your formidable forum.

I would be interested in Shireen Fahey's or Terry Gosliner's views on this specimen. To me, it is most similar to Hoplodoris nodulosa which is supposed to be restricted to temperate Australia and nthn New Zealand. That species also has the reddish brown central patch, and more importantly, usually has orange on the inside of the gills like in your animals.
