Looking at this 2003 photo of a slug which we had been unable to identify, it struck me now that it could be a species of Cerberilla. What do you think?

This is indeed a Cerberilla, and most probably Cerberilla annulata. I don't think its been recorded from your part of the world, but I have found it in Zanzibar, East Africa. I should have a photo of it which I will post when I get a chance. Your animal is most probably a juvenile. When they are smaller, the head tentacles are proportionally much larger than when they are adults.
