Comment from Richard Willan on photo #24518
This is an atypical individual that has a yellow background colour to the body instead of the usual white colour.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2939
This small aeolid looks white to the naked eye, but it is characterised by the blue and yellow markings (spots, like here, or rings) on the cerata, and the reddish rhinophores.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #2524
If this individual is Trinchesia ornata, it is a very unusual colour form.
