Thanks to you and Chikako for these photos. I think these are Noumea nivalis Baba, 1937. In N. subnivalis Baba, 1987, the mantle edge is reported by Baba to be bicoloured with an orange-yellow outer band and an inner yellow band. The rhinophore clubs are reddish purple at the tip and white below. The gills are usually all white but can sometimes have one gill which is yellow-tipped.
I am posting some photos of Noumea nivalis from Hong Kong in a separate message.
