Facelina sp. 02 is characterized by its translucent pinkish-tan body with a white mid dorsal region. The rhinophores and oral tentacles are translucent tan, mottled with white. The cerata are translucent pinkish-tan with a purple spot near the tip. The oral tentacles are tranlucent orange/tan, in some specimens with white speckling near the bases.
To my knowledge are these the only pictures of this species, it is not in IPN nor at the internet!
This specimen was identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
This species was posted on 9 July 2011 at these websites as Facelina sp. B  Genus: Alder & Hancock, 1855,
on 12 August 2011 changed into Facelina sp. 02  Genus: Alder & Hancock, 1855.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
