Dear Marina,
Hopefully someone will let us know if I am wrong but I think this is Flabelina affinis. I can't see any horizontal ridging on the rhinophores but that could be because it is a juvenile. It differs from the very similar looking Flabellina ischitana in having a purple dusting all over the cerata. Though identifying juveniles can be very difficult.
Cheers,
Bill Rudman
