Here is another of Mr Atsushi Ono's images from Kerama Island, near Okinawa which you offered to identify for us.
Mr.Ono thinks it is Dendrodoris albopurpurea but Mr Cory Pittman suggested it is Dendrodoris sp.

It is definitely a species of Dendrodoris and is very similar to Dendrodoris elongata Baba in the way it elongates its body, and has its gills very far to the back of the body. The correct taxonomy of these two species is very confused. Willan & Coleman identify this species as Dendrodoris albobrunnea Allan 1933 but I am not sure they are correct.
