Laulau Beach, Saipan, Nothern Mariana Islands. Pacific Ocean. Depth: 10 m. Length: 10 mm. 26 july 2005. Photographer: Takao Urasawa.

The animal seems to be an unnamed species. It is characterised by the double purple line at the edge of the parapodia and the purple line across the 'neck' at the level of the eyes.

Compare it with Elysia sp. 15 which has a pink patch further back on the 'neck'
