The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 20 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 20 to distinguish it from other species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 20 is caracterized by its pale green background colour, and by white longitudinal lines/patches on the head and on the body between the parapodia. The parapodia are highly undulate and are covered with white tipped papillae. There are numerous minute dark green spots and small orange spots on the parapodia. The rhinophores are mottled pale green, dark green, and white with small orange spots and bear white papillae.
