NOTE: This animal was found under a small rock and was written off as a flatworm. David and I both shot one photo of the animal.
It is a juvenile and not fully developed. Below is a close up of the rhinophores with white lines on them.

Below is a close up of the gills and you can see the two margin folds that fooled us!!.

Below is a photo of the species as a 60 mm adult from Tawali PNG.
