This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Platydoris. I call it Platydoris sp. 01 to distinguish it from other species of Platydoris.
Platydoris sp. 01 is characterized by an orange mantle with minute whitish spots. The rhinophore clubs are orange and the gills are translucent.
Jeffrey Rosenfeld labels it Platydoris sp. 1.
This species was posted on 4 June 2004 at these websites as Platydoris sp. A  Genus: Genus: Bergh, 1877, and changed on 13 November 2011
into Platydoris sp. 01  Genus: Bergh, 1877.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
