Int the German Wikipedia, I gave Polycera faeroensis the 'common name' "färöische Hörnchenschnecke", because another source calls Polycera quadrilineata "gestreifte Hörnchenschnecke". Faeroensis = from the Faeroes.
The Faroese post published a stamp of it in 2002. This is a real beauty, isn't it? :-)
In the Faroese language it has the name Bertákna. The exact meaning of this word I don't know, but I find in my dictionary the Faroese word tákn, what means in this case: tentacle.

I am not a great supporter of common names but certainly like to see nudibranchs and the relatives on stamps. I support anything that helps to make us more aware of the wonders of nature.
