I have attached an image of an animal I found at Kushimoto area, Kii Peninsula, central Japan. It hid under a rock.
First time, I thought that it was Chromodoris sinensis, but my animal doesn't have a red outer line around the mantle border.
Water temperature: 26 degrees.
Please identify this animal.

This looks to be the same as Kazuko Matsuda's animal from Okinawa. I am sure that it does not have a name so I am temporarily calling it Chromodoris sp. 12. However we won't know whether it is a Chromodoris, or a member of a related genus, until we know something about its anatomy.
