Noumeaella isa Ev. Marcus & E. Marcus, 1970
What a spectacular little aeolid. The papillate rhinophores are our first clue it is a Noumeaella. The fine white lines and specks give this species an almost festive appearance. Unlike the specimen shown in Nudibranch and Sea Slug Identification. on page 367, this specimen has yellow on the tips of the rhinophores and head tentacles. Note that the cerata curve inward, individually.
Nice find Ruben.
