Verconia varians (Pease, 1871)

Rare in the Marshalls, Verconia varians is so far known from only three specimens observed at Kwajalein Atoll. Specimens from Hawaii look a bit different, and I'm not sure if they are really the same. The first four photos below are of a specimen found under a rock on the western seaward reef. One of the earlier specimens measured 12mm.

The four photos below were taken with an old film camera.
