Good to see you're busy ... need help?? I thought I would update your Forum fact sheet with a beautiful species endemic to the Sunshine Coast Queensland, Australia that you described. Glossodoris vespa is pretty common here and we see it on about every other dive!
Locality: Sunshine Coast near Mooloolaba, 6-24 m, Queensland, Australia, Pacific Ocean, 30 June 2007, Subtidal. Length: 70-95 mm. Photographer: David Mullins and Gary Cobb.
Cheers and happy branching!

Thanks for some more photos of this species which certainly seems to be found only in southern Queensland. I must say your comment that it is pretty common interests me. Perhaps you could keep an eye out for one laying eggs or even better - eating a sponge.
