This is an undescribed species of the genus Tritonia  Cuvier, 1797, I call it Tritonia sp. 01, to distinguish it from other species of Tritonia.
This species is as Tritonia sp. 2 in IPN on page 332,
Let me quote the description: "Body translucent whitish with orange or brown reticulating patches on the notum. Notal and velar margins, as well as the secondary gills, outlined in opaque white. Velar appendages elongate, with numerous secondary branches."
