Dear Bill,
This species also reminded me of a photo Clay Bryce sent to me a long time ago. Unfortunately I have not brought Clay's photos with me to Thailand, and I think he only had one specimen available, so not much to base a new species description on. However, if it occurs many other places, maybe it would be possible to collect enough specimens for a proper description. It is definitely not Elysia trisinuata, which is bright green with thin white papillae. The best slide I have of this species is one taken by Brian Darvell in Hong Kong in 1986 or maybe 1983, and I still cannot scan slides.

However, I would be happy to receive preserved specimens (formalin and then transferred to alcohol), if anyone happens to find more.
