Last week as I was looking for nudibranchs I found this small aeolid. It was under a small piece of shell I happened to pick up from the bottom (only picked it because it was shiny, not because I thought there would be a nudibranch underneath). Any idea on what this might be?
The measurement was taken from the photo, as it was taken with a 1:1 macro lens (Nikonos).
Locality: Baleal, Portugal. Depth: 5 m. Length: 5.6 mm. 30 July 2005. rock, near a shipwreck. Photographer: Joao Pedro Tojal Loia Soares Silva.

Dear Joao Pedro,
I am pretty sure this is Dicata odhneri Schmekel, 1967, but I only know that species from photos so hopefully we can get confirmation from a local expert. If I am right, this is another new species for the Forum
