Melibe digitata can be distiguished by its highly ramified cerata. The body is golden greenish to brownish, probably a sign of the presence of zooxanthellae. This shot shows its egg-mass.
Thanks for confirming the ID to David W. Behrens.
The original description of Melibe digitata is at PROCEEDINGS OF THE CALIFORNIA ACADEMY OF SCIENCES pages 305ff.
