I have come across a nice photo of Pleurobranchaea meckelii, which was taken by my friend this spring.
Locality: Mandre, island of Pag, Croatia. May 14, 2003 (night dive: 21:30). Photo: Pavel Simak (Czech Republic)
It might be an addition to the gallery of this species.
All the best

I've included a close-up showing the gill which sits in the groove on the right side of the body below the mantle overlap. This is why pleurobranchs are sometimes called the 'side-gilled slugs'. I have also included a close-up alongside showing the oral veil and the sensory papillae along edge, which help to detect food items.
