Hi, Laz, there are two red and white ones around. One has orange bands on the "cheeks" which yours doesn't seem to have - that one is Learchis evelinae

The other one, without the orange cheeks, is "unidentified". Someone is currently working on identifying it, and here is the link. It is currently called Flabellina Sp. 2 on the forum

If you found it out on the reefs that is unusual; we usually find them in Lake Worth Lagoon. However I have seen a couple of very small ones on the 60 and 90-foot reefs off Delray Beach.
