Antonietta janthina from Dauin, Philippines
Identification verified by Richard Willan
 

Identification is verified by Richard Willan, Nudi Pixel expert

Comment from Richard Willan: Leave this photo’s identification as Antonietta janthina. Three characters point towards it not being a Trinchesia sp: its rhinophores are right next together with their bases touching on top of the head (always separated in all Trinchesia spp.); it has quite prominent propodial tentacles on the front of the foot (the front of the foot is usually rounded and without tentacles in Trinchesia); there are only a very few cerata in total (usually more than this in Trinchesia spp.).
