I saw this critter on two night dives on the same site in Horseshoe Bay, South Rinca. The ID books on the boat suggested it was Pleurobranchus reticulatus but said it was only known from the Andaman Sea. After getting home I've tried to find it on-line but P reticulatus isn't listed on Nudipixel or Sea Slug Forum. Can anybody help me out?
