You can try looking at these nudibranch resources. Don't limit yourself to just Malaysia. The lists for each country are just suggestions. Some nudis listed in other countries can also be found in Malaysia.

Bockbong,


Sorry but that's not an egret ardeodoris. Ardiodoris has more outer folds.

The [font=Verdana]Ardeadoris egretta also doesn't have colouration on the rhinophores and gills.[/font]

[font=Verdana]The picture toodus took clearly shows the same colouration as the foot.[/font]

[font=Verdana]It might still be an ardeadoris of some kind. Possibly a variation of ardeadoris sp (don't ask me what the "sp" stands for!).[/font]

i found from this link
http://www.nudipixel.net/species/glossodoris_electra/
"Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2719
At present, there is little to distinguish between Ardeadoris egretta, Glossodoris electra, Glossodoris averni, and other unnamed species of the species complex that are very similar externally. So I use the simple rule – if an individual has completely white gills it has to be Ardeadoris egretta. This individual has brown gills, so it must be a species other than Ardeadoris egretta."

It seems to look like glossodoris averni http://www.nudipixel.net/species/glossodoris_averni/

from toodus pix the spud and gills are orange or brown.

if the gills are white it can be http://www.nudipixel.net/species/ardeadoris_egretta/

perhaps the pics fm toodus above is juvenile glossodoris (read the comment)
