Discodorid sp. 01 Undescribed

We are unsure into which genus this species should be placed so have opted to just call it a Discodorid for now.

The translucent mantle overhangs the foot. The mantle has distinct raised knobby pustules, some white tipped, except for a yellowish central area that is devoid of pustules. There is dense white speckling in between the pustules. The mantle margin carries a white speckled band. A few brown spots are randomly located on the mantle. The rhinophores are brown with white tips as are the sparse gills that protrude posteriorly from a gill pocket.

Found under a rock feeding upon a sponge.
