Chromodoris cf. colemani from the Philippines

Dear Bill,
is this what you call Chromodoris cf. africana?
It is from the Philippines, Cebu Island, Moalboal,
divesite "Kasay Wall".
size: 25mm
depth: 18m
date: 13 March 2002

Dear Erwin,
I think this is what I am calling Chromodoris cf. colemani. I have added red lines alongside pointing to translucent bands on the mantle which are sometimes orange brown. Looking back at an earlier photo which you sent from the Philippines, and I thought was probably a juvenile Chromodoris cf. africana, is possibly Chromodoris cf. colemani. I think I can see traces of these translucent lines - but I can't be 100% sure.
