Aplysia oculifera -Ratnagiri

"small brown 'eye rings' [which give it the name oculifera] but in your specimens they are just small brown spots. However each brown spot is sitting on a translucent brown patch, which is just the same as the brown rings in more typical A. oculifera.
That species often has quite a dense covering of small white spots. Although not as plentiful in your animals, you can certainly see them in your photos."
