Dear Bill
On checking through various postings on the Forum I came across Kathe Jensen's comment about Elysia sp. 10 possibly being Elysia mercieri. I have checked the various references and descriptions she suggested. In Elysia sp. 10 there are no branching processes between the parapodia as per E. mercieri so I think it still has to remain sp. for the time being.
All the best

Dear Lindsay,
Having seen specimens of E. mercieri last year in Lifou, I agree that it is distinct from Elysia sp. 10. The branching processes in E. mercieri however are on the parapodia rather than between them. When I get a chance I'll post a photo on the Forum.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
