Caloria elegans from Gozo, Malta
 

Thanks to João Pedro Silva for suggesting identification for this species

Comment from the photographer: I have tried to identify this but to no avail. I hope you can.
Regards
 

Comment from João Pedro Silva: This is the lighter variation of Caloria elegans. Apparently, Mediterranean individuals are usually lighter and Atlantic ones tend to have orange or red cerata. I recently found an individual (http://www.nudipixel.net/photo/00005011/) with cream coloured cerata near the tip but orange near the base suggesting the colour depends on the food.
