I am sorry, I do not understand why the green creature in front of the message of Nishina Masayoshi, with perfoliate rhinophores and long, cylindrical, not leaf-like, cerata is called Aeolidia?

Your wish is granted! It is no longer in the genus Aeolidia. I was calling the animal 'Aeolidia' because that is where Michael Miller provisionally placed it when he described it in 1987. He planned to publish a revision of the family soon after. Richard Willan's message today informs us that Michael's revision is at last published and the 'green creature' has been removed to a new genus Burnaia.
