Pretty similar is Flabellina sp. 01, which differs by the papillate rhinophores.
This species was posted on 25 May 2003 at these websites as Cuthona sibogae (Bergh, 1905), I followed Miller (2004) and placed it on 7 December 2010 in the genus Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879.
Cella et al. (2016) moved it into the genus Tenellia A. Costa, 1866 in the family Fionidae J.E. Gray, 1857.
Korshunova et al. (2017) restricted the genus Tenellia A. Costa, 1866 to this 3 species:
-Tenellia adspersa (Nordmann, 1845)
-Tenellia chaetopterana Ekimova, Deart & Schepetov, 2017 and
-Tenellia fuscata (Gould, 1870)
and reinstated the family Trinchesiidae F. Nordsieck, 1972 with the genera
-Catriona Winckworth, 1941
-Diaphoreolis Iredale & O'Donoghue, 1923
-Phestilla Bergh, 1874
-Rubramoena Cella, Carmona, Ekimova, Chichvarkhin, Schepetov & Gosliner, 2016
-Tenellia A. Costa, 1866
-Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879 and
-Zelentia Korshunova, Martynov & Picton, 2017
and moved T. sibogae (Bergh, 1905) again into the genus Trinchesia von Ihering, 1879.
I changed it again on 16 October 2017 into Trinchesia sibogae (Bergh, 1905) [Hervia].
