I was wondering if someone could confirm this nudibranch as Adalaria jannae. It was found in Monterey Bay [California] at about 10 ft. It was eating the encrusting bryozoan shown on the inside of an abalone shell. Length is about 1 cm.

I am sure someoen will confirm this is A. jannae which I understand is yellow or orange in the Calfornian part of its range. It's nice to get a photo of it on the bryozoan which I asume is either Lyrula hippocrepis or Reginella mucronata, two species it is reported to feed on in California.
If someone can confirm the identification of the nudibranch and identify the rather distinctive bryozoan I would be grateful
