Concerning message #16166:

Dear Bill,
I sent Lucas Cervera some larger photos of this Flabellina and here is his answer :

================
Marina,
Seeing with detail your photos and the egg masses, I think that all specimens are Flabellina affinis. Under the white tip, it is possible to see a light violtet/pink shadow that is not present in F. ischitana. In other specimens this violet pigmentation is darker and wider. This belongs to the intraspecific variability.

Cheers.
Lucas.
