Comment from Richard Willan on photo #32921
I think this is the first photo of this species on Nudi Pixel. It is characterised by the chocolate brown colour and by the low conical papillae on the mantle that are interconnected by low ridges. This is a new record from the Philippines, as this species was previously known from Madagascar, Indonesia and the Marshall Islands.
