Aeolidida sp. 03 is an undescribed aeolid. Without looking at its anatomy even the genus cannot by determined.
Vishal Bhave suggested Cumanotus sp. at NUDI PIXEL.
Aeolidida sp. 03 has a pale tan dorsum with large white specks at the middorsal region, the translucent foot is very broad, the foot corners are long. The cerata, the oral tentacles, and the rhinophores are translucent brown, whitish marbled. The rhinophores are papillate at the posterior side. The brown ceratal cores are spiraled, not branched.
Pictures of a 7-8 mm specimen (demolated), from the same location (Dauin, Negros Oriental Island, Philippines) are at the Mediterranean Slug Site, labeled Aeolidida sp. 05.

For some genera, such as Trinchesia is the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I have chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
