I noticed that you do not yet have any nudibranchs from Suvorov, Cook Islands. This picture was taken on the inside of the atoll near the fringing reef.
I hope I have the identification right, Glossodoris atromarginata.

It could be G. atromarginata but I am pretty sure it is Glossodoris sibogae, which has a distinct yellowish background colour and white submarginal band aroud the mantle edge. The only way to be sure however is to dissect the animal and looks at its teeth!
