During the Halgerda mating weekend [message #20305 ], I also happened to stumble across a couple other nudibranchs I haven't seen before. The brownish one was about a half inch long, and the other was only about a quarter of an inch long. Can you help me with ID's on them.

This is a species I am calling Chromodoris cf. lochi for want of a 'real' name. The earlier specimens didn't have as much orange as your animal but the outer black line just in from the mantle edge, and the orange-tipped gills show they are all the same
