The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 26 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 26 to distinguish it from other species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 26 is characterized by its mottled whitish/pink background colour, with whitish tubercles on body, head and parapodia. The distinctive rhinophores are long, thin and clear. The dark green digestive gland branches into the tip rhinophores.There is brown/green pigment on the foot.
Pretty similar is Elysia sp. 03, which differs by short rhinophores with papillae.
