The aeolid is indeed an old friend, from my days in New Hampshire. It is Cratena pilata. Marcus first placed it in Cratena. It is probably a Sakuraeolis or something like that based on the penial glands that are found in that species. It certainly is not a Cratena. Even many of the common species in New England are in need of taxonomic revision.
All the best,
