Hi, you've been very helpfull in the past. Here's another unidentified Nudibranch for you to post:
It is a bit less than 5mm long, yet quite elaborate for its small size. I photographed it in Discovery Bay, Jamaica, a couple of weeks ago.

This is a juvenile chromodorid. I suspect it is Chromodoris clenchi but as you will see from the comments at the top of this page there are a few very similarly coloured species. I suspect until we know more about this species, identifying juveniles will be a slighty risky exercise.
For those of you interested in beautiful underwater photos Barry's site [http://www.barrylipman.com] is well worth a visit.
