Elysia evelinae Er. Marcus, 1957
Nudibranch of genus Elysia feed primilary by piercing and sucking algae cells (chloroplasts).They are sap Sucking Slugs.Thats why Elysia is,like their food, often green.Young species are brownish or beige in colour.
Unfortunately, no additional information available about Elysia evelinae.It's descrived that E.evelinae eats diatoms and probably Caulerpa algae.
