This species is as Berghia sp. 3 in IPN, page 404.
Pers. comment of David W. Behrens on 8 December 2015:"Upon study of the internals, Terry has decided that it was not an Aeolidiidae as previous thought but an Facelinid, in the genus Noumeaella. It is our sp. 4 in the new "Nudibranchs and Sea Slugs Identification", page 367."
This shot shows 4 specimens ranging from 1 to 6 mm length.
