This striking bubble shell looks like the species called Haminoea sp. 3 in Gosliner et al, 2015. Specimens were found by Christina Sylvester, one at about 3m on the deck of landing craft sunk on the lagoon side of Kwajalein Islands and another in one of the Kwajalein reef quarries. The larger shell measured about 8mm.
