Tambja cf. affinis from Myanmar
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: This individual agrees with typical Tambja affinis in having a broad, pale creamish green band on the rhinophoral sheath and narrow black longitudinal lines on the mantle, but it differs in having completely black rhinophores like T. victoriae. It demonstrates, yet again, that these two supposed species may not be different at all. Another example of the problems in separating these species can be found on Nudi Pixel at Tambja affinis page
