I posted the following pictures on our local forum but we couldn't identify it. Any idea what it is ?
It's the second time i find this kind of slug.

I am not 100% sure because I can't see enough detail, but I think it is an elysiid. The only one I know with long papillae on a very long rhinophores is Elysia mercieri. However it doesn't have tufts of papillae at the parapodial edge, as that species does, so I am not sure. Perhaps Kathe JUensen will recognise it.
