This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Platydoris. I call it Platydoris sp. 04 to distinguish it from other species of Platydoris.
Platydoris sp. 04 is characterized by its light reddish pink colour with large darker patches. There is a lighter mid-dorsal hump. The rhinophore clubs are brown and the gills are tan.
It is Platydoris sp. 2 in IPN at page 196:

Dr. Alicia Hermosillo labels it Doris rojo1.
It was originally posted at these websites as Platydoris sp. D  Genus: Genus: Bergh, 1877.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I have chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
