Comments:
Unidentia sp. 7: Cerata have a swollen shape, coloured solid white with a full sub-apical ring
and an orange tip. Rhinophores are patchy white to the basal half, purple to the distal half
and a white tip. Oral tentacles not visible. (In the fullness of time it might be shown that these
differences are but intraspecific variations. We elect to separate them at this time so we do not lose track of those differences.)
