These photos where taken at Lesvos island, in the northeastern Aegean Sea, 3 years ago.
I am not sure what species of Pleurobranchus it is but maybe it is P. forskalii...
Some help on this????

The high tubercles suggest that it is P. testudinarius, and I have ringed one tubercle which has part of the characteristic bluish-pinkish ring often found around the base in this species.
This dark reddish colour form with a white margin around the mantle edge does not seem to be a very common colour form but in one of Baki Yokes' photos from nearby Turkey [message #7200] there is an animal with a more usual colour pattern but with a white mantle border
