Aldisa pikokai Bertsch & Johnson, 1982

Aldisa pikokai is rare in the Marshalls, known from only two specimens found at Kwajalein. One specimen measuring 10mm was found in a surge channel ledge on the seaward reef at about 9 meters at night. The habitat and noctural activity was similar to numerous specimens we have observed in Hawaii. This photo from Kwajalein was taken by David Johnson.
