Three weeks ago, on the same wreck where Mr. Segars got his photo of Tambja? gratiosa ten years ago, I found a number of these pretty yellow slugs [see message #14281 ]. My photos aren't nearly as nice as the others here, but I thought it might still be worthwhile to speak up.

Thanks for the information. It is certainly a valuable addition to our knowledge. Interestingly a new species of Tambja has recently been described - Tambja tentaculata Pola, Cervera & Gosliner, 2005 - which has unique, long tentacular oral tentacles, so perhaps your animal is another Tambja with long oral tentacles, rather than a Roboastra, but we will need to look at its anatomy to be sure.
