This is an undescribed or unidentified species of the genus Lomanotus. I label it Lomanotus sp. 06, to distinguish it from other species of Lomanotus.
Lomanotus sp. 06 has a light tan body with numerous simple lobed black lateral appendages.The rhinophoral sheaths, rhinophores, oral tentacles, and the anterior margin are also dusky black. This specimen lacks the right rhinophore. This is Lomanotus sp. 3 in IPN at page 326. "Known only from the Philippines."
This species was posted on 23 January 2011 at these websites as Lomanotus sp. F  Genus: Vérany, 1844, and changed on 8 October 2011 into
Lomanotus sp. 06  Genus: Vérany, 1844.
For some genera, such as Trinchesia was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
