This 5mm long eolid was found under a rock at a depth of about 8m on a Kwajalein Atoll lagoon pinnacle on 5 September 2011. Unfortunately, we got only this photo with a small digital microscope, and the colors seem a little dark; it was more magenta to the naked eye. It would appear to be the species figured as Cuthona sp. 9 in Gosliner et al (2008), previously known from southern Japan, Papua-New Guinea and the western Pacific of Australia.
