I would like to show my photo of Eubranchopsis virginalis as an example of a specimen with 'acutely pointed tubercles' on the cerata. I agree with your comment that the outline of aeolid cerata may alter depending on individuals or condition of the animal.
Data: Kominato, Boso Peninsula, Japan
Intertidal, on Sargassum, BL 7 mm, 11 Dec. 1996.

Your photo looks very like the painting in Opisthobranchs of Sagami Bay. Yasuhiro's animal seems to be a peculiar colour form with more white pigmentation and redder bands on the oral tentacles and rhinophores.
