This is an undescribed species of the family Facelinidae  Bergh, 1889, it is characterized by its long transcendent oral tentancles with white spots. The smooth rhinophores are also transcendent with white spots. Distinctive are the corkscrew-like pale yellowish cerata arranged in a few ceratal clusters. The body is translucent whitish with a yellow tinge, the 'tail' is opaque white. The foot-corners look like a skythe.
I label it Facelinidae sp. 12 to distinguish it from other undescribed species of the family Facelinidae  Bergh, 1889.
