I am pretty sure this is Hypselodoris fucata, which is quite interesting, as we know very little about this species apart from its description from Natal, South Africa. In specimens from there, the longitudinal lines down the mantle are orange-red in colour and only the submarginal line, alongside the yellow border, is purple. In your animal all the longitudinal lines are purple. So far this species has only been reported from the northeast coast of South Africa.
