This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Polycera. I call it Polycera sp. 02 to distinguish it from other species of Polycera.
Polycera sp. 02 is characterized by its bownish-black body, and by its translucent white rounded tubercles The rhinophores are dark brown, with a distictive opaque white tip, the gills are translucent white. There are translucent spicules.
It was originally posted at these websites as Polycera sp. B  Genus: Cuvier, 1817.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I have chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
To my knowledge are these the only pictures of this species, it is not in IPN nor at the internet!
