Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #21184
This species has a characteristic hump on the head and short rounded tail processes, unlike Chelidonura varians.

Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #1305
Note the large bump 'above' the eyes, characteristic of this species.

Excellent, showing diagnostic features.

This seems to be a funny colour form of Philinopsis gardineri – there are a couple dotted on the internet with these extra yellow markings.
