Comment from Richard Willan on photo #6811
An undescribed species. This species is similar to Trapania naeva, but this one has very long extra-rhinophoral and extra-branchia processes that are gold. By contrast, in Trapania naeva the processes are relatively short, and the same chocolate brown colour as the blotches on the mantle.
