Any thoughts on this little one's lineage?

I would normally send this to Dave Behrens but the way the circle of gills is arranged in a goblet shape is characteristic of the genus Hallaxa, and the greyish tips to the rhinophores, and the greyish patches on the mantle, identify this asHallaxa chani . It ranges in colour from a translucent white, which is the colour of all the other photos of it on the Forum, to this translucent yellow colour, which makes it a valuable addition to the Forum.
