I messaged @mucktopus after your post but she had disappeared off the on-line planet for a few months. She did return my pm today with the following,
My guess is it's O cyanea based on the proportions, the papillae and the pattern around the eye. Though it could be a little beast that might be Amphioctopus kagoshimensis. I've never gotten a definitive ID but think it's in Lembeh.
