I found this in a Wollongong rockpool.
Locality: Wollongong, NSW, southeastern Australia, rockpool. About 15 mm long, initally under a rock which was kicked over. May 2005
Is it a Flabellina?

Although this looks superficially like an aeolid, it is a sacoglossan, much more closely related to Elysia than to Flabellina. This species appears to be identical to the Mediterranean Placida cremoniana. As it is found in many parts of the Indo-West Pacific, this strange distribution is either very ancient, or the result of shipping in the last 200 years.
