I think you are going to like this one - I believe this is Tambja olivaria displaying a full set of yellow banding.
Once again this image is from the Philippines on the reef that surrounds Gato Island (which is near Cebu and Malapascua Islands). It was found at a depth of 15m and was approximately 50mm in size.
I see a previous record on the site of this Tambja at 'Lapus-Lapus' at Malapascua Island - you can actually see this site in the distance from Gato Island.

You are right. I do like this one. It's always good to get an animal that confirms an identification. The earlier photos we have from the Philippines lacked a lot of the yellow markings described in the original material for the Maldives so getting photos of an animal that matches the original description is very useful.
