We also found this species in Hugo's Trench at Julian Rocks last week and are unable to ID it. Do you have any suggestions?

Dear Roxanne & Jason,
This is a pretty distinctive looking species of Elysia. It almost looks as though it may be related to the species of Pattyclaya, such as P. brycei, which have evolved lateral flaps across the inside of the parapodia. I don't recognise the species, but someone may be able to suggest a name
