I have found in Santa Marta, Colombia a nudibranch that seems to be Chromodoris kempfi. I took a look at the articles wrote by Marcus and his wife about the opisthobranch of the Santa Marta region and they don´t mentioned this species for this area. Do you know if there are notes about the presence of this species in the waters of Colombia?

Have you any photos? or does it look like the animal at the top of this page? As far as I know there are records of this species from northern Brazil, Florida and the Caribbean end of the Panama Canal. So it seems to be widespread Caribbean species which you would expect to find on the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Most of the Marcus's papers were based on small collections made by non-specialist collectors. They were never comprehensive so an absence from one of these collections is not an indication that a particular species does not occur in that area.
