Comment from Richard Willan: This dorid nudibranch is characterised by possessing some gold markings (either lines, or dashes, or spots) on the mantle, and by 4 tentaculate processes off the front of the head. By contrast, the similar looking Polycera faeroensis is characterised by the complete absence of gold markings on the mantle, and by 8 tentaculate processes off the front of the head.
