I photographed a slug in Indonesia last week that looks a lot like Marionia olivacea. It was sitting on a sand slope in Lembeh Strait, Sulawesi.
Divesite: Hairball Too
Depth: 8 meters,
Date: Nov. 25, 2002 about an hour after dark.
What do you think?

Thanks Mary Jane,
It could well be. At present we don't know enough about colour variation in the tritoniids to be very sure of most species in the Indo-West Pacific. I had thought of M. olivacea as a probable NW Pacific endemic, but we really don't know enough about its distribution.
