A friend from Buceo Pandora showed me this very small (5-8mm) nudibranch over a caulerpa prolifera leaf... Location: Gran Canaria, Canary Islands. We have no idea of its ID so any hint is greatly appreciated!

Certainly a Eubranchus, possibly E. farrani. See http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/20174 for a somewhat similar specimen.

Thank you very much! :P More people have agreed to your opinion in that it could be a local variant of E. Farrani.
