This is Oxynoe viridis (Family Oxynoidae). It has a fragile bubble-shaped shell in the centre of the body which is partially enclosed by parapodial flaps.
The Family Juliidae is another shelled sacoglossan family, but in that remarkable group the shell is bivalved, like a clam or cockle. I have posted a page on Julia exquisita, a typical species of the Juliidae.
