Brian, the nudibranch you photographed at Heron Island is a 'Halgerda aurantiomaculata' Gold Spotted Halgerda. Further details see website
I also had photographed this one at Heron Island several years ago and needed to have it identified.

message Thanks John, That's the one. The thin orange line around the mantle seems to be diagnostic. I was going to send it to Bill Rudman if I couldn't identify it. You have saved me from troubling him. Maybe we both photographed the same one, who knows? I was hoping it was rare, like the Seram Blenny I found there. website or website
