In the Mediterranean there are two forms of Haminoea hydatis. A dark form and a lighter coloured form. I am posting a photo of the light coloured form from Malta found in weed washings from 0.5 m depth, in contrast to Jean-Paul's specimen from the Mediterranan coast of France. H. orteai, also from the near Atlantic, is distinguished by the unpigmented area around the eyes.
