Dear Chay Hoon,
I think this is the same as the one in your other message [#22204] which I have decided to call Bornella sp. 2. In these photos you can clearly see the wrinkles on the dorso-lateral processes. The large sail-like process on the rhinophores sheath certainly reminds me of Bornella hermanni, but without some anatomical information, I think it would be a bit premature to ignore the wrinkles and body colour. It is indeed an interesting find.
