Here is the pers. comment on the above specimens by the sacoglossan expert Kathe Rose Jensen:
"There is some similarity with Elysia japonica as well as Elysia flavomacula with the black rhinophores and white patches along parapodial margins. However, there are also some pigment spots missing for it to fit either one of these species. Anatomical characters might solve this problem, but I'm afraid there are still a lot of unnamed Elysias in the Indo-Pacific region."
I call it Elysia sp. 02 to distinguish it from other undescribed species of Elysia
It was posted on 26 April 2004 at these websites as Elysia sp. B  Genus: Risso, 1818, and changed on 22 July 2011
into Elysia sp. 02  Genus: Risso, 1818.
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.
