Dear Dr. Rudmann -
Here's another recent photo I took while diving in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It is Flabellina salmonacea according to Dr. Larry Harris at the University of New Hampshire. It was in about 7m of water and measured about 33mm long.

Your animal looks almost identical to those in Paul Young's photos from New England. It's nice to have some consistent colour patterns now and then.
