Unknown from the Caribbean

Dear Bill:

I'm writing to you again. I found two of these organisms on a soft bottom (Depth 10ft)cover with Halophila sp seagrass [Santa Marta, Colombia - Caribbean coast]. The body is cream color and the cerata are completely translucid and have some kind of cross at the end of them. They were about 1 cm long. I have no idea what they can be, do you?

Dear Phanor,
I'm sorry but I can't see enough detail to be sure whether it is a sacoglossan or an aeolid. If it is an aeolid it is possibly a eubranchid, but really I have no idea what it is. Some one may recognise the very distinctive markings on the ceratal tips.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman.
