Hi Bill,
This gorgeous animal is called a "magical" Hypselodoris in Coleman's book. Has it been described? [July, 2002]

Location: Nudi falls, Lembeh Straight, North Suluwesi, Indonesia.
Depth: 40 feet
Length: 10 cm.

Dear Marli,
This is Hypselodoris iacula. Your animal is more like the one illustrated in the original description, than the ones already on the Forum, which have a more distinctive white reticulate pattern.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
