This small 7mm long dorid was wide, flat, and stiff and looked as though it could be a kind of Platydoris. It could be a juvenile of something familiar, but if so it is not obvious what it might turn into. The first specimen was found under a rock on top of a Kwajalein lagoon pinnacle at a depth of about 8m on 15 February 2009.
A second specimen measuring about 20mm was found by Christina Sylvester at a depth of 2m in January 2016.
