Dear Bill,
Concerning the message about Phyllaplysia from Sulawesi.(#16218 )
How about Elysia trisinuata? We can see three parapodial folds on dorsum.
Best regards,
Dong Bum Koh

Dear Koh,
It certainly has some elysiid characteristics, but sacoglossans only have one pair of head tentacles. This animal has two pairs of enrolled tentacles, and a sperm groove on the right side of the head, which makes it a sea hare.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
