Comment from Nathalie Yonow on photo #22481
I think so but cannot see the rhinophore sheaths, which should have a large flat appendage.

Note the rounded pink egg masses within, as well as thedivisions at the ends of the swollen tuberculate (papillate) cerata.

I am pretty sure this is M. rangii - very transparent, but you can just about make out the cerata, as well as the beads of the ovotestis within the body.
