Elysia sp. e644

This is the blackest Elysia we have seen here in the Marshalls. The papillose rhinophores tie it somewhat to species like Elysia sp. 563 and it could be a color form of that species. This unique black one measured 5mm in length and was found on sandin 8m of water on the Kwajalein Atoll seaward reef on 2 April 2012.
