Pleurobranchus albiguttatus is characterized by the triangular white marks on the inside of dark brown tubercles. The tip of the white triangles point towards the mantle edge. This shading gives the spots the appearance of raised white pointed papillae.
This specimen had been completely misidentified as a juvenile, it is most probably a species of the genus Chlamydoconcha  Dall, 1884 class Bivalvia,
with reduced shells which crawls like a snail! I changed it on 20 July 2016.
This specimen had been misidentified by the photographer J.Rosenfeld and was posted at these websites on 3 August 2017
as Pleurobranchus varians  Pease, 1860, I changed it on 5 November 2020
into Pleurobranchus albiguttatus (Bergh, 1905).
