Species Paraflabellina ischitana

It is a nudibranch of about 1.5 to 2.5 cm. Body and tentacles are violet. Inner part of the cerates is orange to reddish, which are the digestive glands. These are observed clearly all along the cerates, except for the very end of its tips, which are white and opaque. Cerates form fan-like shapes along its dorsal part of the body. Rinophores show horizontal rings all along.

Most frequently confused by Flabellina affinis, but these show a cerates with an opaque zone close to the tip so digestive glands are not clearly observed.

It may be also confused by Edmundsella pedata, but this species show smooth rinophores.
