Thanks, @Daniele and yes, I was aware of it and I was very excited when I saw it during the dive because I knew it is a rare find and a beauty to that :)

At that time, I could identify it only to the Family of Aeolidae.
The researchers probably have the materials from much earlier as the description process usually takes a very long time.

I checked the references and realized that when you spotted it, it hadn't yet been officially described :-)
