I think that the Colin's Ercolania from Bahamas is not E. coerulea. This is an uncommon Mediterranean species. You can find a good description in Schmekel and Portmann's book (1982). Moreover, you can find a photo of a living animal in the Erwin Koehler's Opisthobranch Web page. The photo has not a high quality, but you can recognize some of the characteristic features of the species.

My understanding was that this species was quite variable in colour. I look forward to some guidance from Kathe Jensen.
