Its worth comparing this with your other photo [#19348] and Jean-Francois Herve's animal [message #19123] which I identified as C. striatella. I am beginning to wonder whether animals like yours and Jean-Francois' are really C. burni, a species which was differentiated externally on the orange rhinophores, and gills with a triangular cross-section with orange outer edges and an inner black line. If so, perhaps C. burni is just a juvenile of C. striatella because there seem to be animals in which the triangular gills merge into the more rounded C. striatella form and begin to have secondary branches.
It is certainly worth thinking about.
