This sacoglossan is characterized by forked rhinophores which place it clearly in the former family Caliphyllidae  Tiberi, 1881 which had been synonymized by Bouchet et al. (2017) with Hermaeidae  H. Adams & A. Adams, 1854.
Mourgona sp. 02 has green vesicles in the translucent flattened leaf-like cerata. The whole animal is translucent white. The cerata have opaque white speckling which concentrates near the margin.
The specimen #1 was identified on 28 February 2020 by Vie Panyarachun of the facebook group nudibase. Thanks!
