Linda do you have any other shots/angles? Certainly don't take my guess as definitive.
Your subject does have the same appearance as well as the slime trail seen in the other image.

Lindsey Groves, the museum's mollusc collection manager passed on the image to Angel Valdes, co-author with Terry Gosliner & Dave Behrens of "Indo-Pacific Nudibranchs & Sea Slugs". He confirmed that Linda's animal is what they called Haminoeid sp 2 in the book. One thing that keeps it out of the genus Haminoea is the extremely long tail which you can sorta see in Linda's pic & clearly in Indra's Nudipixel pic.
