Facelinidae sp. 05 is an undescribed species of the family Facelinidae, it is characterized by a broad yellowish-orange middorsal line,
starting at the anterior end of the head, running at least to the first pair of cerata.
The cerata are translucent brownish with whitish tips. The brownish-tan digestive glands are clearly visible, they are thick and unbranched. The rhinophores are
basally translucent, the outer half is whitish. The long oral tentacles are also translucent with a whitish outer half.
Most probably is this specimen an adult of Facelinidae sp. 02,
those specimens have two longitudinal orange spots between the rhinophores, their cerata are subapically pinkish, diffusing into bluish
apices. There are some diffuse whitish blotches on their cerata.
