Locality: Faro, 16 metres, Portugal, Atlantic Ocean, 13 April 2006. Photographer: David Abecasis.

Note added 25 April: This is indeed F. affinis. My mistake - Bill Rudman

Dear David,
It is a nice photo but I think it is of Flabellina ischitana. It is very similar in colour to F. affinis but one colour difference is that in F. affinis the ceratal digestive gland duct is obscured by a purplish dusting over the ceratal wall. In this animal the reddish digestive gland is clearly visible through an apparently transparent ceratal wall.  The pinkish lobules filling the base of the ceratal stalks are the ovotestis.

I would appreciate some feedback on this please Lucas?
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
