Dear Bill,
Marcelo's photo is Anisodoris marmorata which is a junior synonym of Doris variolata D'Orbigny, 1837. Its generic placement is problematic. I still think that at least the smaller tubercles are caryophyllidiid ones (Marcus, 1959; Schrödl, 1996) and I would place it into Diaulula. I did SEM's some years ago but I cannot find them at the moment, so I'm going to do some new ones.
I'll tell you about the results.
All the best, and happy New Year
