Trinchesia sp. 45 is characterized by its translucent brownish body with some diffuse tan markings. The translucent cerata are relatively long with thick tan digestive glands. The smooth rhinophores and the oral tentacles are basally translucent brownish whith a tan outer half. The eye has a peculiar shape - like a keyhole on its side.
The specimen #1 (pictures #1, #2, and #3) had been attacked by some predator so only the front half is remaining.
I place it tentively within the genus Trinchesia  von Ihering, 1879, I should have better used the family Trinchesiidae  F. Nordsieck, 1972.
Korshunova et al. (2017) reinstated the family Trinchesiidae  F. Nordsieck, 1972 with the genera
