Trapania sp. 13 is characterized by its translucent whitish colour, and by distinctive orange tips of the rhinophores.
The photographer Athena Ng writes (pers. comment) the above specimen was 2 mm 'long', that is, it is most likely a juvenile. Maybe a juvenile
Trapania aurata  Rudman, 1987, or a Trapania cf. vitta  Gosliner & Fahey, 2008, I don't know if the orange colour on the lateral appendages, on the oral tentacles, and on the gills develops when the specimen is growing. That is why I keep it for now as Trapania sp. 13  Genus: Pruvot-Fol, 1931.
