Description

maybe a stretch of the imagination but:

  • no markings extending from the front base of rhinophores to the oral tentacles characteristic of E rustyus? but reminds me of this observation https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/159418472
  • forgot that the dorsomedial markings are the major distinction, didn’t get great shots. on the images of the tail you can see the olive marking extending up the dorsum?
  • not sure if the cerata are irregularly nodular.

Description

Please leave at genus for now. Preliminary ID by @tgosliner is Catriona group of Tenellia species. Thank you also @jeffgoddard for your ID help.

They were not tiny -- all were between 15-25 mm long.

Non-scientific description:

Body was translucent white with no other markings. No foot corners that I could see.

Ceratal cores were brown with orange tips, with varying degrees of faint opaque white frosting on the leading edge of the cerata, ranging from virtually none on the smaller individuals to obvious on the largest individual.

Rhinophores were smooth with opaque white on the backside of the tips, with a small orange-red patch just below that (barely extended to the front of the rhinophore, so not really a "band").

Oral tentacles were about the same length as the cerata, with a red-orange patch on the leading edge that did not extend to the tip. As with the rhinophores, the oral tentacles had varying degrees of opaque white frosting on the leading edge of the cerata, ranging from virtually none on the smaller individuals to obvious on the largest individual. On only the largest individual, the opaque frosting extended into the head.
