Searched the species list, but .. no luck! Not able to find this Chelidonura. Please help. Awful image, but good enough for identification.

This is an interesting relative of Chelidonura called Odontoglaja guamensis. The name odontoglaja means the 'toothed aglaja' because it has radular teeth which are absent in other aglajids, and links the family to the philinids and gastropterids, which have similar radular teeth. At 15 mm, it is quite a large example. I have included a close-up of part of the animal as it shows the colour pattern rather well.
