Here's a shot of what appears to be what you're calling Glossodoris sp. 10 taken in Anilao, Luzon Island, Philippines in April, 2002.
If it is indeed the same species, it's worth noting that I found this specimen in approximately 15 meters, quite a bit shallower than the one Erwin previously

This is an unnamed species of Glossodoris. It does not seem to be very common but from memory have seen of it from the Great Barrier Reef and Indonesia. I'll have to check to see if it is a relatively deep water species. I just realised that you photographed this only one month ago - the Forum is certainly a quick means of spreading the news.
