The closest thing I can find is Sakuraeolis kirembosa from TAnzania & the UAR. These are photos of the specimen it was described from http://www.seaslugfo...t/find/sakukire

There are more images of kirembosa on the net, most of which show it with yellow markings at the base of the cerata & the blue of the tip extending down the cerata. Most of these come from the Philippines.

Sakuraeolis kirembosa has been found in the Philippines, so it looks like Leslie is correct on this beauty.
