An undescribed species.

This was initially identified as Pattyclaya sp. but then revised by Richard Willan. His comment: However, I am not sure this species is a member of the genus Pattyclaya because I can see no evidence of the presence of 50 or more large gill-like lamellae, on the inside of each parapodia. They sit at right angles to the parapodia edge and run from the edge of the parapodia to about halfway to the dorsal midline of the body. These lamellae are the key feature to identify Pattyclaya. Therefore, it is best to identify this photo just as Elysia sp.

Similar in color to Elysia ornata but with much reduced parapodia. Might be undescribed. Elysia sp. 11 on the Sea Slug Forum or http://www.underwaterkwaj.com/nudi/sacoglossans/e453.htm from the Marshalls.

Looks like an Elysia of some sort.

Strange beast. I guess this is a new species unless one of the many old names apply...

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #22458
Clearly several of these Elysia are undescribed.

This same species is already posted on Nudi Pixel (see here). This species is similar to Elysia ornata, but Elysia ornata never has white stripes on the head and rhinophores.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2633
An undescribed species. In comparison, Elysia ornata has an additional orange line on the parapodial margin and no white stripes on the head and rhinophores.

Although this individual has the same pale yellow-green colour of Elysia obtusa it is not that species, or even related to it. Elysia obtusa never folds its parapodia over its body like this, and the margins of its parapodia are edged with a white line

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #1341
This species is related to Elysia ornata, but is probably undescribed.
