I found these animals at Sunabe in Okinawa, Japan, and I cannot identify. You mention some species name which have very similar colour patterns to Chromodoris verrieri on its page. Is this one of them?

This is an interesting find. The only white unspotted chromodorid I can think of with a submarginal yellow band like this is Chromodoris aureomarginata from New Zealand, which has white gills and rhinophores. Your animal is probably an unnamed species. I would need to know something about its anatomy before I could definitely say whether it is a Chromodoris or belongs to a related genus.
