This is a species of Lomanotus. We have found six specimens, three each at Enewetak and Kwajalein Atolls. They were found in two groups of three individuals each, and were on the pictured hydroids. The Enewetak specimens measured 8, 6, and 5mm long and were on the slope of a lagoon pinnacle near a deep-water atoll pass at night. The Kwajalein specimens, also found at night, were on the leeward seaward reef.
