Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #27970
This looks like the Favorinus sp. 4 figured in Gosliner, Behrens, & Valdes (2008).

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #18791
This photo shows a group of 3 animals feeding on the same nudibranch spawn mass.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #15528
The rhinophores in this species are most similar to Favorinus pacificus.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #991
More detailed images showing the ornamentation on the rhinophores are needed to enable a more exact identification of this species. Note the white piece of nudibranch spawn in the foreground which these individuals were probably eating.
