This species looks pretty similar to Stiliger sp. 3 in Gosliner et al. (2015), page 76.
The Sacoglossa expert Dr. Kathe Jensen writes on the above pictures (pers. comment): "As for genus, you pretty much have to look at radula teeth and penial armature to be sure, and furthermore, genus Stiliger certainly needs re-definition and most likely will be split in two or more genera."
That is why I use the family and label it Limapontiidae sp. 02  Family: J.E. Gray, 1847, #01 is occupied by Limapontiidae sp. A.
It is characterized by its translucent greenish colour, by thin dark green lines on the cerata , and by a few minute white spots on the cerata and on the rhinophores.
