Haminoea sp. e540 is known from one specimen found at night on 23 February 2008 in a lagoon reef Halimeda patch. It was pointed out to us that it resembled what we are calling Haminoea musetta. It does indeed in shape and overall appearance. There are some coloration differences, but these may not be important. In the original description of H. musetta, Marcus & Burch (1965) describe a couple of different color forms, and it likely has more. Although we are leaving it here for now, there is a good chance these two species are the same.
