I found this nudibranch in a shallow turtle grass meadow in St. Joseph Bay, Florida (NW Florida). When I originally found it, it was on a sponge that was nearly the same color. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me and my collecting jar was too small to get the sponge too. I was hoping you could identify it for me.
Locality: St. Joseph Bay, northwest Florida, in the Gulf of Mexico, USA. Atlantic. Depth: less than 1 foot at low tide. Length: 3 inches. 9 April 2005. sandy bottomed sea grass meadow. Photographer: Mike Greenemeier (The picture of it on the vegetation is not where I found it. It was just an attempt to get a picture of it not in a jar.)

I feel I should know this rather conspicuous dorid but I admit defeat. But i hope someone familiar with the fauna can help.
