Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #17766
This is subflava as I see it; note the genital papilla just behind the 'neck' much closer to the rhinophore than the gills.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #28018
This is an aberrant or deformed individual with the mantle represented only as a little ‘umbrella’ over the top of the head.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #10981
This gymnodorid nudibranch is characterised by the bright lemon yellow body with only the faintest of speckling, and by a distinct mantle brim. This photo shows the anal opening is situated midway between the rhinophores and the gills.
