Would someone help me Id. this small nudi I found feasting on a floating pyrosome in Anilao.

Not more than 8mm, the pyrosome was drifting in blue water 5-7m deep.

Would be also happy to have confirmation of this inhabitant found in a white tunicate : amphipod? (Anilao - Kirby's Rock / 15m)

I think the nudi is an undescribed Elysia sp.

Thanks for your reply, I also thought of an Elysia genus from the general greenish almost "aplysian" look (sorry for the approximations), although the rhinophores look completely different though.

 

Would you direct me to any specific site on the net where I could find an image of a similarly looking nudi?
