The sacoglossan Elysia sp. 09 is not yet identified or still undescribed, I call it Elysia sp. 09 to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Elysia, until I know its name.
Elysia sp. 09 is caracterized by its whitish green colour - it is densely covered with minute white and green spots, which gives it a whitish appearance. There is also some yellowish-orange pigment. There are small white papillae on the body and on the parapodia. The rhinophores are translucent, with white and yellowish-orange spots.
The above pictures were identified as Elysia asbecki  Wägele, Stemmer, Burghardt & Händeler, 2010 at Nudi Pixel. The website Nudi Pixel is down, the pictures are gone.
The description of Elysia asbecki is online at http://www.mapress.com/zootaxa/2010/f/zt02676p028.pdf,
Elysia asbecki has a yellow ring at the tips of the rhinophores, and often a pink line at the posterior end of the foot.
