Species Edmundsella pedata
It is a nudibranch of about 1.5 to 2 cm. Colour of the body and tentacles are pinkish to mauve. Cerates are orange to reddish, or even brownish. The tips of the cerates, tentacles and rinophores are white. The cerates of this species may form groups or be well-separated. The rinophores are smooth.
Could be confused by Flabellina affinis or Paraflabellina ischitana, but should be noted that the rinophores od Edmunsella pedata are smooth, while rinophores in F. affinis and P. ischitana show horizontal rings all along.
