cf. is an abbreviation from a Latin word (confer) and means 'refer to' or 'compare with', here it means it could possibly be Chromodoris africana or perhaps something closely related, or at least similar in appearance.
There are many similar coloured chromodorids which Bill Rudman calls the "Chromodoris quadricolor colour group". Chromodoris cf. africana can be distinguished by the marginal orange line of the border of the mantle and the irregular black lines on the mantle. I guess this species is undescribed. 
More information on Chromodoris cf. africana are on Bill Rudman's Sea-Slug Forum!
