Ardeadoris egretta is characterized by its white body, gills and rhinophores which have an opaque white line on the center of the anterior face, and by the yellowish-orange marginal band on the mantle. It is one of my favorite sea-slugs! 
Pretty similar are:
Ardeadoris averni which has also a pure white mantle, it differs the broad orange-red band at the mantle margin, and by the orange-red rhinophores and gills,
Ardeadoris sp. 01 which has also a pure white mantle, and white gills and rhinophores, it differs by the thin red line at the mantle margin, followed by a diffuse pale red submarginal band, followed by a broad opaque white band.
More information on Ardeadoris egretta are on Bill Rudman's Sea-Slug Forum!
