The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 01 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 10 to distinguish it from other species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 10 is caracterized by its dark brown-green colour. It is densely covered with minute translucent papillae, there are a few small white papillae on the body and on the parapodia. The rhinophores are translucent, with yellowish-orange markings.
I am not sure if the 2-3 mm specimen and the 13 mm specimen are the same species, the 2-3 mm specimen might be as well a juvenile of Elysia sp. 08.
