Concerning message #21856:
I think this specimen is Aglaja tricolorata showing a colour variation.
The tail is identical with the flagellum and the global shape also.
Would you confirm, or could this be Chelidonura sp ?
Locality: Cagnes, 8 m, France, Mediterranean sea, 17 June 2009. Length: 45 mm. Photographer: Dominique Horst.
Many thanks and kind regards,

The thin flagellum is a good characteristic of Aglaja. Also the shape of the ridge on each side of the head shield - outlined in white in your photo - is very similar to the east Pacific species Aglaja ocelligera.
