I am trying to ID this nudibranch . Now that the sea slug forum is dead i am having a slight spot of bother.

Taken off the Raja Ampat islands in West Papua.

Hi there,
It's a Chromodoris coi, all right. There is substantial variation in this species. Some have dots around the mantel, some have "orangey" dots inside the wavy line.

Thanks for your help.

I am trying to correctly identify all the photos i am putting on my website but it certainly isn't easy or quick.

There will probably be few few more posted by me that i may need your help with.

The blue line on the margin is pretty definitive of Glossodoris cincta. This is a small photo file, but have a look.
Cheers,
