Elysia sp. 03 is not yet identified or undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 03 until I know its name. It is characterized by it whitish-green colour and by the relatively large parapodia. There are small white papillae on the body and on the parapodia. Distinctive are the papillate rhinophores.
It is probably as Elysia sp. 10 in IPN at page 83
Maybe it is the same species as Elysia sp. 14, which does not stretch its parapodia.
This species was posted on 28 February 2011 at these websites as Elysia sp. C  Genus: Risso, 1818, and changed on 22 July 2011
into Elysia sp. 03  Genus: Risso, 1818.
Pretty similar is Elysia sp. 26, which differs by long smooth rhinophores.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia is the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I have chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
