message I did some more research and it seems to be the Pteraeolidia ianthina.
This critter is one of several species with the nickname blue dragon.

That is a great photo! A very difficult subject to photography. And you manage to capture it looking a question mark. Good JOB!

You got my vote!

Jeff
