Noumeaella sp. 02 is Noumeaella sp. 5 in IPN at page 382. Let me quote the description:
"Body translucent white with an opaque white patch on the anterior portion of the head and the notum. Cerata light brown, inwardly curved. Translucent white oral tentacles with opaque white spots. Rhinophores dark brown."
This specimen was identified by Dr. Richard Willan, thanks!
This species was posted on 18 June 2011 at these websites as Noumeaella sp. B  Genus: Risbec, 1937, and on 19 July 2011 changed into
Noumeaella sp. 02  Genus: Risbec, 1937.
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.
