Facelinidae sp. 10 is an undescribed or unidentified species of the family Facelinidae, it is characterized by a translucent body, cerata, oral tentacles and
rhinophores. The pale tan digestive glands in the translucent orange cerata are not branched, the cnidosacs near the tips of the cerata are whitish. The rhinophores
are smooth, thick and long, and have orange pigment near the apices, and white tips. The oral tentacles are long with orange pigment in the outer half.
I can't see enough details to be sure on the generic placement, though I lean to the genus Sakuraeolis Baba in Baba & Hamatani, 1965,
that's why I use the family Facelinidae Bergh, 1889.
