Melibe papillosa is characterized by its flat 'paper like' cerata which have some papillae at their tips, and by its translucent brownish/golden body. There are a few papillae on the body. Let me quote IPN:"Cerata wedge-shaped and triangular with a laterally flattened surface."
The pictures #4 and #5 had been misidentified and were posted on these websites on 16 November 2011 and 6 November 2013 as
Melibe viridis  Kelaart, 1858.
