I would call this Polybranchia orientalis. I think it variation in colour from brown to green is related to its food - either the colour of the algae it is eating, or if it is only feeding on green algae then the light brown colouration is a phase at the end of a feeding cycle.
Is this poisonous? I think i was stung.
