Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #4599
The orange & light blue lines between the rhinophores are characteristic

Comment from Gary McDonald on photo #2653
Yes, this is definitely Hermissenda crassicornis. It is distinguished by the double, opalescent blue median line running the length of the body and enclosing a bright orange-yellow elongate spot between and posterior to rhinophores and another in cardiac region; and the weakly perfoliate rhinophores.

If you wish to post a photo of the rhinophore, go to Photo #2687
