I couldn't find it on any of the slug websites I frequent, so if you could help out with an identification then I'd be grateful!

While researching this species for the web page I'm putting together, all the photos seemed to have yellow tubercles. However, now I see that the sea slug forum does mention that the tubercles can be yellow or white.
Out of interest, what function do the lobes perform?
