Concerning message #15595:
I believe this is Taringa luteola. See - http://slugsite.us/bow/nudwk139.htm.

Funny what you find on the Forum. After receiving your message I did a quick search to see if Doris luteola was mentioned anywhere and found Michael Schroedl's message [#9092] showing that Doris luteola Kelaart, 1858 was preoccupied by Doris luteola Couthouy in Gould, 1852 and proposing the first available name is Thordisa caudata Farran, 1905. I will prepare a new Fact Sheet for Taringa caudata [= Taringa luteola (Kelaart, 1856)].
