Here is the comment on Elysia sp. 02 by Kathe Rose Jensen:
"There is some similarity with Elysia japonica as well as Elysia flavomacula with the black rhinophores and white patches along parapodial margins. However, there are also some pigment spots missing for it to fit either one of these species. Anatomical characters might solve this problem, but I'm afraid there are still a lot of unnamed Elysias in the Indo-Pacific region."
I call it Elysia sp. 02 to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Elysia
It was originally posted at these websites as Elysia sp. B  Genus: Risso, 1818.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia is 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.
