Found this one last weekend. Is it Aplysia parvula?

Yes this is the form I am calling Aplysia cf. parvula. Whether it is a colour form of Aplysia parvula or a separate species will need some anatomical research.
Thanks for these great close-ups of the head. They show the 'ear-shaped' rhinophores very well, and in the photo alongside, the sperm groove can be seen running along the right side of the head.
