Marionia sp. 20 is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Marionia or possibly of the genus Marioniopsis.
It is characterized by its pale tan/white background colour, and by the reticulate pattern of thin black/brown/red lines on the body. The reticulate pattern is less intense along the midline of the body and between adjactent pairs of the gills, giving the appearence of a white longitudinal band and transverse white patches. The velar tentacles are short and branched.
Very similar or possibly the same species are:
Marionia sp. 04  Genus: Vayssière, 1877 which lacks the "white longitudinal band and transverse white patches" and
Marionia sp. 21  Genus: Vayssière, 1877 which lacks the "white longitudinal band and transverse white patches" .
This species was posted on 6 October 2014 at these websites as Marionia sp. 04  Genus: Vayssière, 1877, now I think it is a distinct species.
