This is a nice photo of a rarely photographed species. I have included a close-up of the posterior end showing the mantle glands around the edge. In this genus, small mantle glands are found in a closely packed single row around the mantle edge. In this species, the glands at the posterior end, behind the gills are much larger than the rest of the glands, as you photo shows.
