Dear Bill,
Thanks for your comments. The only better photo of the head I have is this one (of the same animal). I hope it would help you.

Note added 15 July 2006: This species has now been named Tambja haidari

Thanks Marina,
Yes it does help. It shows that the dark blue bit I thought might be a large oral tentacle is a fold of the mantle edge. This would suggest your animal is not a species of Roboastra. I suspect its a Tambja, but not a species I am familiar with
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
