Note added 12 May 2005: This is Phyllaplysia lafonti [see message #13719]
Thanks for this record. This is another new species for the Forum. I am sure you are correct in identifying this as Petalifera petalifera. It looks identical to a photo in Ocana, (2000) of this species from the Straits of Gibraltar.
