This animal are found only commonly on Caulerpa sp. during Spring and the
beginning of Summer. It looks Volvatella vigourouxi to me, but I'm not sure.
Please give me your help.

This is possibly Volvatella vigourouxi, but animals I am familiar with from New Caledonia are a much deeper yellow orange in colour, and have a longer siphonal canal on the shell. Have a look at the information I have just posted on this species.
