This is a species of Halgerda. I am pretty sure it is Halgerda brunneomaculata, although in that species there is usually a thin yellow edge to each of the mantle ridges. However all the other external features seem to fit that species. It has similarities to H. maricola but the colour on the gills and rhinophores is quite different, and the edge of the foot and the mantle in that species is yellow.
