David W. Behrens writes this is an undescribed aeolid of the genus Flabellina, I label it Flabellina sp. 03, to distingiush it from other undescribed Flabellina. The body is translucent tan with four large opaque white specks in the middorsal region behind the rhinophores/eyes, between the cerata and one on the head in front of the rhinophores. The finely annulate rhinophores are translucent with a broad opaque white subapical band. The cerata are often very long, whitish with a diffuse bluish subapical band.
This species was posted on 1 October 2010 at these websites as Flabellina sp. C  Genus: Voigt, 1834, and on 23 August 2011
changed into Flabellina sp. 03  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.
