Jorunna alisonae Marcus, 1976

Five of these animals have been observed, four at Enewetak Atoll on a lagoon reef under rocks or aluminum siding debris in 3 to 5 meters of water. The light rings around the darker spots resemble those of Jorunna ramicola Miller, 1996, as figured by Gosliner et al (2008). It could be that species.

The specimen below was in a lagoon algae patch at Kwajalein Atoll at a depth of about 8m on 23 July 2012.

This one appears to be the same thing. It was under a small rock on a shallow lagoon Kwajalein reef.
