This is identical in colour to your earlier photo [message #13281] from Brazil. As I said there, this colour form matches the original description of this species from northern Brazil, and is rather different from the colour pattern of animals from the Caribbean which I have identified as the same species. Perhaps the species has geographic colour variants? It would be nice to compare the anatomy of the two colour forms and perhaps their egg ribbons. There is a photo in Caribbean Sea Slugs of a bright pink egg ribbon, but it seems rather large compared to the size of the slug alongside.
