Comment from Richard Willan on photo #4422
This is a strange atypical individual with disproportionately large rhinophores.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #28007
Hard to be sure from the side view, but I think this looks more like Noumea norba.

I don't think this is D. pusilla. Among other things, in that species, the posterior white blotch is always(?) distinctly anterior to the gills. I suspect this is actually Noumea norba.
