Hello, everyone. I'm looking for an ID for this slug, which looks like an Elysia or something similar. Found at Torpedo Alley in Horseshoe Bay, Komodo.

Don't know, but I like those fluted pulpit rhinophores.

Wow that's a really interesting one Eric. Kinda looks like a cross between an  Elysia  and a Tritonia. And then there's the tail that  

from this angle looks to be keeled. Have a good look at Scyllaeidae family species, there's some close similarities that I can spot.

I'm fairly sure that your find is a Scyllaea fulva- http://www.nudipixel...scyllaea_fulva/

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Certainly not an Elysia.
Looks very like Notobryon sp.2 in Gosliner et al's Indo-Pacific Nudibranchs and Sea Slugs.

I think I could go with a Scyllaea fulva, or at least a Scyllaea sp.! Thank you...
