This tiny dorid is thought to be a species of Paradoris. It is known from a two specimens, the first found in a cave at night on Kwajalein's seaward reef. It measured 6mm and was found on 13 June 2009. It is similar to Paradoris sp. e145, but seemed different enough that we are keeping it separate.
The 5mm specimen below was found at night in a small cave on a Kwajalein Atoll lagoon pinnacle at a depth of 14m on 19 June 2010.
A third specimen was found at night in a small cave on the Kwajalein seaward reef on 13 February 2016.
