Found in Manado Indonesia. Size estimated to be between 5mm to 10mm

I think it could be Trapania sp. based on what looks like the extrarhinophoral and extrabranchial appendages.

Thanks Jim, Kaloplocamus peludo does look a good fit, certainly hairy enough too.

Maybe Kaloplocamus maru as the body is browner and the description mentions the dark brown spots on the notum and gill branches. Though Richard Willan on Wetpixel questions if K. maru is the same species as K. peludo.
