This is an unidentified or undescribed species of the genus Polycera. I call it Polycera sp. 02 to distinguish it from other species of Polycera.
Polycera sp. 02 is characterized by its brownish-black body, and by its translucent white rounded tubercles The rhinophores are dark brown, with a distictive opaque white tip, the gills are translucent white. There are translucent papillae.
This species was posted on 11 July 2011at these websites as Polycera sp. B  Genus: Cuvier, 1816, and changed on 11 December 2011
into Polycera sp. 02  Genus: Cuvier, 1816.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
To my knowledge are these the only pictures of this species, it is not in IPN , nor in Gosliner et al. (2015), nor at the internet!
