David W. Behrens wrote this is an undescribed aeolid of the genus Flabellina, I label it Flabellina sp. 02. Its red/brown rhinophores and oral tentacles with white spots are pretty distinctive. The cerata are brownish with whitish patches, and a ring of small puple spots the base of the cerata is translucent. The body is whitish/cream covered many small white spots.
Pretty similar is:
Facelinidae sp. 04 Family: Bergh, 1889, which differs by a frosted white body, by translucent purple rhinophores with incomplete annulae, by transcendent cerata with a tan core, and by long oral tentacles, basally translucent purple, the outer 4/5 opaque white.
It was posted on 5 August 2004 on these websites as Flabellina sp. B  Genus: Voigt, 1834, and
on 23 August 2011 changed into Flabellina sp. 02  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 had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
