I am pretty sure this is a species of Cuthona but I will need some help in identifying the species.
In the close-up photo alongside parts of the digestive system are clealry seen. The whitish triangular object with black speckles is the oesophagus-stomach region, swollen with recently eaten food. The yellowish lines are ducts connecting to the digestive gland duct in each ceras, where the food is digested and absorbed.
