Just in case you might need closer inspection of the rhinophores of the Herviella I found intertidally here on the Sunshine Coast, [#14869 ] I have sent you three photos. Does the close-up of the rhinophores reveal black bands...I don't think so. Just a more packed area of black blotches.
It is interesting the little clear area where the eye spots sit.

Thanks for these. As I comment in your accompanying message [#14869], these almost ceratinly are what Bob Burn described as Herviella claror but whether it is really distinct from H. affinis will require a bit more work.
