Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Discodorididae sp. 18 is characterized by its translucent orange colour, and by numerous short papillae. The gills are also translucent orange, the rhinophores are orange.
It might be a variant of the Japanese species Thordisa sanguinea  Baba, 1955 which lacks the white pigment on the tips of the median papillae, or an undespibed species of the genus Thordisa  Bergh, 1877, or some other genera...
Dr. Alicia Hermosillo-González labeled this picture "Dorido amarillo 4.JPG".
I am not sure which genus it might be, that is why I keep it for now as Discodorididae sp. 18  Family: Bergh, 1891
