Verconia laboutei is characterized by a yellowish-green to orange mantle and wine red gills and rhinophores.
The above specimen was identified by Dr. Richard C. Willan, thanks!
Pretty similar are
Verconia sp. 01 which differs by large opaque white spots on rhinophores and gills, and by large obvious glands on the mantle,
Diversidoris crocea which has a whitish submarginal band and yellowish-green rhinophores and gills and
Diversidoris flava which has an orange-red mantle border and yellowish-green rhinophores and gills.
