The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 24 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 24 to distinguish it from other species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 24 is characterized by its brownish background colour, with white mottling and minute white spots. There is a white patch on the head. There are large blue spots on the sides of the parapodia and the body. The tips of the rhinophores are blueish, the tip of the 'tail' ist also blueish.
This species is very similar to Elysia sp. 31 in Gosliner et al. (2015) at page 90, exept of the rhinophores which do not resemble bull horns, and exept of the brownish background colour.
