Kia orana Bill,
Greetings from Rarotonga.
I found this nudbranch a while ago and can't find any reference to it.
Locality: Ngatangiia, 10 metres, Rarotonga, Cook Islands, South Pacific, 20 September 2002, Coral reef. Length: 10 mm approx. Photographer: Graham McDonald.

I am pretty sure this is Halgerda brunneomaculata. It normally has distinct yellow ridges forming a network over the mantle, like most species of Halgerda, but I suspect in a juvenile like yours the ridges are not yet well developed.
I just realised I didn't have a Fact Sheet for this species, so I have rectified that as well
