Dermatobranchus cf rodmani Gosliner & Fahey, 2011

This small species seems somewhat similar to the recently named Dermatobranchus rodmani but may not be that species. It is known from the Marshalls from a single specimen found on a Kwajalein lagoon pinnacle on 8 September 2013. It was exposed, crawling on algae-covered rock at a depth of about 6m. It measured 14mm stretched out. The fused rhinophores is probably a deformity.
