Could someone please identify this for me? I took this picture in 1988. Sorry for the picture quality.

This has recently been identified as Chromodoris neona, but as I have discussed elsewhere on the Forum, I think this is an unnamed species which I am calling Chromodoris sp. 17. Have a look at the Fact Sheet for further information.
I suspect this is quite a range extension for the species which has previously not been reported further north than Florida
