variant 1
 
variant 2
     
There are 2 colour variants of Chromodoris dianae: the first variant has white gills with an orange upper half and a white margin of the mantle, the second variant has white gills with an orange edge and some diffuse orange patches at the white mantle margin parts. There are no internal differences.
I've seen the second variant only two times at Cabilao and at Moalboal, Cebu, the first variant is pretty common.
This picture of the second variant was identified by David W. Behrens (Chromodoris dianae is named after his wife).
