Eubranchus sp. 23 is characterized by its translucent body with a pinkish tinge, by a white and yellow patch on the head, and yellow markings on the notum, and by the enormous size of the cnidosacs in relation to the length of the cerata. The smooth rhinophores are alternating pale tan, darker tan, the outer third is pale tan. The translucent cerata have a whitish ring on the swelling. The oral tentacles are of the same colour as the body and have whitish apices.
The identification was confirmed by Dr. Richard C. Willan, thanks!
