Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Trapania sp. 04 is characterized by its mottled whitish-tan colour, there seems to be blue pigment on the extrarhinophoral and extrabranchial appendages, the picture is too small and blurry, there is some kind of black transverse bar between the oral tentacles which reminds of Trapania gibbera which differs by translucent orange rhinophores, impossible to see enough details to tell more!
The blue pigment reminds of Trapania palmula.
To my knowledge is this the only picture of this species it is not in IPN nor at the internet!- Of course except of the website of Dr. Alicia Hermosillo.
