Thordisa sp. e545

This animal appears to match Thordisa sp. 7 in Gosliner et al (2015). It also has some resemblance to one of the possible Jorunna pantherina forms figured on the Sea Slug Forum. The single 17mm specimen was found in a Halimeda patch on an eastern lagoon reef of Kwajalein Atoll at a depth of 8m on 2 September 2008.

One more was found off the north end of Kwajalein by Christina Sylvester in August 2016.
