Trapania sp. 16 is uniformly maroon, it might be an extreme colour form of Trapania sp. 01 without white spots, the white tips of the oral tentacles and of the rhinophores suggest it.
The above picture is to my knowlege the only one of this species, it is not in IPN or Gosliner et al. (2015) nor at the internet.
