Marionia sp. e348

Marionia sp. e348 is known from about seven specimens found at Kwajalein Atoll. All were found at night on the leeward seaward reef slope, usually in the vicinity of small colonies of soft coral, and measured between about 75 and 110mm. They are similar morphologically to specimens of Marionia rubra from Enewetak Atoll, but those were brown with reddish pustules. Still, we have seen few specimens and the color could vary. It is likely they are variations of one species.

A 75mm specimen found on 26 March 2016.
