Unfortunately a rather bleached specimen - one of many seen in this condition - washed up along sandy beach. I think this is Gari stangeri (purple sunset shell) but it is a tad too bleached for me to be sure, so genus level determination for me, for now.

Main photo by dive friend and buddy Tom Bliss. Others by me.
It could be either a snail of the Velutinidae family? or a slug in the Onchidiidae family? i couldn't feel an internal shell with my gloves but I gently turned one over and it curled into a ball. I couldn't see any rhinopores or anything but it seems to have either a breathing tube or anus opening on the top side at one end?
