    I might be able to help with a few ids. Please correct me if I am wrong on any of these.
    From the top down:

    1: ?
    2: Phyllodesmium koehleri
    3: Pteraeolidea semperi
    4: Pteraeolidea semperi
    5: Sagaminopteron psychedelicum
    6: possibly Melibe engeli ?
    7: possibly a Cyerce sp. or Polybranchia sp.
    8: ?
    9: ?
    10:
    Phyllidiella pustulosa

    I dove in Romblon a little over a year ago. It was a great place. Hope some of these ids help.

    1: Facelinidae sp.
    2: Phyllodesmium koehleri
    3: Pteraeolidea semperi
    4: Pteraeolidea semperi
    5: Sagaminopteron psychedelicum
    6: Melibe Colemani
    7:
    I would throw in Melibe coralophilia, just for the size (I don't believe in Cyerce sp.) but the photo doesn't show much
    8: Can't see anything ...
    9: Can't see much except the hydroids except a spot of yellow and black, so just for this I would suspect Cyerce NIgra ..
    10: ?
