Oxynoe sp. 02 is characterized by the bright green colour of the body with small yellowish/orange spots, and by the whitish markings on the rhinophores (absent in specimen #2, pictures #2 and #3). The specimen #1 has some small bright yellow papillae/tubercles, absent in specimen #2.
The specimen #2 has lost its 'tail', this is possibly the reason why it is not on its food source.
Very similar is Oxynoe viridis (Pease, 1861) which differs by blue spots and by white papillae.
It is reported to feed on Caulerpa racemosa algae.
