This specimen was identified by Gordon Tillen as an undescribed species of the genus Jorunna. I label it Jorunna sp. 04, to distinguish it from other undescribed species of the genus Jorunna.
Jorunna sp. 04 is dark pinkish to maroon, with rounded darker spots, which are lighter encircled. The gills and the rhinophores are translucent brownish-maroon, the rhinophores have a whitish apex.
It looks somehow similar to the East-Atlantic Ocean / Mediterranean Sea species Jorunna onubensis  Cervera, García & García-Gómez, 1986.
It was posted on 23 September 2010 at these websites as Jorunna sp. D  Genus: Genus: Bergh, 1876, and changed on 25 September 2011
into Jorunna sp. 04  Genus: Bergh, 1876.
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.
