The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 14 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 14 to distinguish it from other species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 14 is caracterized by its pale greyish-green colour, and by the brownish pigment arranged in a diffuse bow from the anterior end of the parapodia to the posterior third of the parapodia. The rhinophores are transparent have short papillae. It has small rounded tubercles with opaque white tips on the body and on the parapodia. There are also a few ocelli (small round brown spots, pale encirrcled) on the body and on the parapodia.
Maybe it is the same species as Elysia sp. 03, which stretches its parapodia.
To my knowledge are these the only pictures of this species, it is not in IPN nor at the internet!
