Do you recognize this nice eolid? I have no idea who is it. I found it in Mauritius.
What a shame, I haven’t any good shot of its rhinophores.

I am pretty sure this is the aeolid I have called Favorinus cf. mirabilis. As you see in my comments to earlier messages, in most respects it fits Favorinus mirabilis, but there are a few colour differences. At present we don't know if they fall into the normal variation found in the species. Your photo is quite helpful because it is the first of these orange-yellow animals which clearly shows the dark reddish spot near the tip of each ceras [see photo alongside], which is characteristic of Favorinus mirabilis. Another vote in favour of it being considered just a colour variation of that speces.
