I was hoping that I could get some aid in the identification of this nudibranch. I believe it is a Hoplodoris but I am unsure as to the species, there are a couple that I believe it may be.
As always, thank you for your great help and wonderful site!

In general shape and colour I am pretty sure this is Hoplodoris nodulosa which is a bit puzzling as it is thought to have a distribution in the more temperate waters of sthn Australia and New Zealand. We have a specimen from Reunion Is, in the Indian Ocean [message #19494], which I have tentatively identified as the same species. If I am correct we would have to have a rethink.
