Tergipes sp. 03 is as Eubranchus sp. 13 in IPN , and as as Eubranchus sp. 27 in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 342, let me quote the description:"Translucent with dark digestive gland branches visible through the notum; cerata slender with brownish cores and bulbous opaque white apices; rhinophores smooth."
This species was posted on 25 July 2017 at these websites as Eubranchus sp. 21  Genus: Forbes, 1838. Dr. Richard C. Willan identified it as a species of Tergipes  Bergh, 1874. He writes (pers. comment):"Your Eubranchus sp. 21 is an undescribed species of Tergipes because it has only a single ceras in each cluster."
I changed it on 26 July 2017 into Tergipes sp. 03  Genus: Bergh, 1874
There are only a few pictures of this species online, 1 from Bali, Indonesia, and 1 from Komodo, Indonesia, and 2 from Ambon, Indonesia #1, #2.
