Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Rostanga lutescens is characterized by its pale orange body, and by lingter rings, somehow similar to the Atlantic/Mediterranean species
Discodoris rosi  Ortea, 1979.
Dr. Alicia Hermosillo McKowen labeled the picture #1 "Doris rojo2.jpg".
I posted it on 16 September 2015 as Discodorididae sp. 23  Family: Bergh, 1891 with the comment: "I am not sure which genus it might be, though I lean to Rostanga  Genus: Bergh, 1879, that is the reason why I keep it for now as Discodorididae sp. 23  Family: Bergh, 1891."
Dr. Richard C. Willan identified it already one day later!
There are several pictures of this species on Scott Johnson 's website on the Marshall Islands.
More information on Rostanga lutescens are on Bill Rudman's Sea-Slug Forum!
