Dear Jerry,
You are right to be hesitant with this. It is probably a species of Tambja, but the large oral tentacles are very reminiscent  of a species of Roboastra. One possibility is Tambja tentaculata but I am beginnig to wonder if we are right to push everything with large oral tentacles and a greenish colour into that species. Perhaps Marta Pola can help.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
