This is an undescribed aeolid of the genus Flabellina, I label it Flabellina sp. 01. The body is translucent pale lilac, the oral tentacles are bluish, the papillate rhinophores are orange with a purple subapical band and translucent pale lilac apex. The cerata are translucent pale lilac with a purple subapical band.
Pretty similar is Tenellia sibogae, which has different rhinophores: purple, slender smooth.
It was posted on 24 June 2004 at these websites as Flabellina sp. A  Genus: Voigt, 1834, and changed on 23 August 2011 into
Flabellina sp. 01  Genus: Voigt, 1834.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I hade chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
