Aeolidioidea sp. 05 is an undescribed or unidentified aeolid. Without looking at its anatomy even the genus cannot by determined.
Vishal Bhave suggested Cumanotus sp. at NUDIPIXEL.
Aeolidioidea sp. 05 has a pale tan dorsum with large white specks at the middorsal region, the translucent foot is very broad, the foot corners are long. The cerata, the oral tentacles, and the rhinophores are translucent brown, whitish marbled. The rhinophores are papillate at the posterior side. The brown ceratal cores are spiraled, not branched.
Pictures of a 7 - 8 mm specimen (demolated), from the same location (Dauin, Negros Oriental Island, Philippines) are at the Mediterranean Slug Site, labeled Aeolidioidea sp. 03.
This species was posted on 25 September 2010 at these website as AEOLIDIDA sp. C Parvorder: Odhner, 1934, and changed
on 16 July 2011 into Aeolidida sp. 03 Parvorder: Odhner, 1934.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
Bouchet et al. (2017) synonymised the Parvorder Aeolidida  Odhner, 1934 with the superfamily Aeolidioidea  J.E. Gray, 1827
within the suborder Cladobranchia  Willan & Morton, 1984, order Nudibranchia  Cuvier, 1817.
I changed it on 28 March 2018 into Aeolidioidea sp. 05  Superfamily: J.E. Gray, 1827
