While enjoying your fantastic inventory of sacoglossids from around the world, I thought you would like to add two of Jeff Hamann's great photos to the Fact Sheet for Elysia papillosa Verrill, 1901. Jeff and I collected both of these specimens at Ranguana Cay, Belize, Central America.

This is a nice addition to the Forum. Jeff's photos certainly show the external features that Kerry Clark considered characteristic of this species, including the papillae and the dark brown line along the parapodial edge in larger animals. I am sure we will only make sense of this group of animals when we have a better idea of their colour variation. There is not much point in knowing the anatomy of decolourised carcases if we can't tie the anatomy to living shapes and colour patterns.
By the way, is the algae I have enlarged from Jeff's photo Penicillus?
