I really need help on the ID of this nudibranch. I took the photo on February 24, 2002 at Folly Cove in Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA in approximately 20 feet of water. The nudibranch is about 5 mm long.
I have never encountered this one before and I was particularly taken by the light blue tips to the cerata. I tried looking through Bleakney's book but it's not helping or I'm missing something.

I am pretty sure this is a species of Eubranchus, perhaps E. exiguus, but this group are quite difficult to identify to species without local knowledge. Hopefully someone with a knowledge of the North Atlantic fauna will recognise it
