The shape of the rhinophores and the 'furry' mantle certainly suggest this is a species of Rostanga, and it is most probably R. orientalis. However, at this stage of our knowledge it is always possible that there are more undescribed species of the genus. The only way to be sure is to study the radular morphology, the shape of the egg ribbon and identify their sponge prey.
