Sagaminopteron bilealbum Carlson & Hoff, 1973

Sagaminopteron bilealbum is known from the Marshalls from about eight specimens found by Jay Lord on a single sponge colony on a large lagoon pinnacle. Several other sponge colonies of the same species nearby were examined and contained no specimens.

The sponge they were found on forms encrusting patches like this one on tops of lagoon pinnacles.
