Thanks for these extra photos. This species is remarkable in how large the terminal tubercle on each ceras can become. It also seems to show that the rhinophores sheath has tubercles around the edge - mimicking the shape of the cerata it seems. I am pretty sure from these photos it is not the species Doto bella that Baba described from Japan. Unfortunately I have not seen a photo or recent description of an animal from Japan that matches Baba's description.
