I photographed this small branch at La Jolla yesterday.

Looks like the white version of the Catriona Rickettsi from page 124 of Eastern Pacific Nudibranchs. Thoughts?Image

very nice find.

That's a tough one, it didn't seem to be a good match on anything I saw in Behren's latest book.

Catriona rickettsi says "opaque white on the distal third of the rhinophores", which I don't see in this photo.
