Author's notes

Tiny animals, they appeared to have purply tips to their "horns" sorry the images are so poor. Elysia atroviridis?

The black tips to the rhinophores are distinctive and I think I can just see black margin to the parapodia - these are very common and fast growing slugs that move in very quickly when there is fresh green filamentous algae.
