I would appreciate help with the ID on this creature, possibly a nudibranch. These are video screen grabs taken in the Komodo National Park on a day dive. It is about the same size as a moderate nudibranch and was alone. I am not sure if structures on the left of picture first picture are gills or eggs. I cannot find it in any of my critter ID books.

 

Thanks for your hellp

To answer my own question. One of my BSoUP friends has suggested that this is a partly curled up sea pen with nudibranch eggs laid at its base. I think he may well be right :-)
