I have found this animal in May this year, but can't find much information. It looks a lot like the species photographed by Tom Turk [message #13521], but it seems to lack the red lines as you mention in your Factsheet for Facelina fusca. It can also be that this is hard to see, because the animal was rather small.
Locality: Selce, 4 metres, Croatia, Adriatic, 16 May 2006, Sandy floor. Length: 4 mm. Photographer: Mat Vestjens.
Can you help me on this?

This certainly looks the same as Tom Turk's animal, but what we don't know is the variability of F. fusca. Very few animals of this species seem to have been reported so until the anatomy of specimens with and without red lines can be compared I don't think we can make a confident identification. Perhaps someone with firsthand knowledge of the fauna can help
