Flabellina pedata Flabellina affinis Mediterranian sea, depht 35 meter
What is the english name? In german we call it violette flabellina
The ringed rhinophores, purple pigment on the surface of the cerata (especially near the tip) and the stalked ceratal clusters differentiate Flabellina affinis from Flabellina pedata. Regarding "common" names, very few names have genuine common names so get used to the latin names. There's a very good post about this subject at the Sea Slug Forum: http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/common

Very cool! But I think you have photographed two different species of nudibranchs
Another interesting spotting!
