Although quite similar to Haminoea ovalis, we think this is a bit closer to what is called Haminoea sp. 2 on the Sea Slug Forum and Haminoea sp. 1 in Gosliner et al (2008). These specimens were photographed showing queuing or trailing behavior at Kwajalein Atoll. There were quite a few around on the day these were seen. There seems to be quite a bit of variation among these orange-spotted Haminoea, making it difficult to tell them apart. We could be way off in the way we sort them out.
