I thought you might like this shot of what I believe to be Aphelodoris antillensis. I photographed it in the latter part of 1979 in Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. Unfortunately I do not have any details as to depth found or its length. However judging from the size of its rhinophores in relation to the size of its body and the branchial plume being fairly small, I suspect that it is a juvenile and quite small. It's not great shakes as a photo but at least one can see the rhinophore type pretty clearly.
All the best

This certainly looks to be a more 'typical' colour form of the species than the one we have on the Forum [m9286]. I have included a close-up of the naterior end to show the raised rhinophore pockets and the apparent white mantle glands around the mantle edge.
