Elysia pusilla (Bergh, 1871) [Elysiella]

Click the thumbnail photos to enhance!

Elysia pusilla feeds on the calcareous green alga Halimeda. Because of the reduced parapodia, many workers followed Bergh and placed it in the genus Elysiella. IPN places it at page 86 in the genus Elysia, so does WoRMS.
Maybe Elysia sp. 06 is a variant of Elysia pusilla,
and Elysia sp. 11 might also turn out to be a variant of Elysia pusilla.
