I photographed this species in February this year and could not find the species name. To me it seems like Nembrothinae subfamily, like Tambja, Nembrotha or Roboastra. Can you identify it?

This is the recently named species Tambja victoriae. At present it is known only from Papua New Guinea and northern Australia, so this is an interesting extension of its geographic distribution.
