Chromodoris cf. geminus from Mauritius

Dear Bill,
Can you help me to identify this Chromodoris from Mauritius, please?
It is different from Ch. geminus , Ch. kuniei and Ch. leopardus because it hasn’t any blue border on the mantle. But apart from this lack of the blue border it looks like your Chromodoris cf. geminus.

Thanks Marina,
Despite the lack of a bluish border I am sure this is what I am calling Chromodoris cf. geminus on the Forum. Your ventral photo shows the nature of the mantle glands very well,
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
