facelinid sp. e094

This unidentified species is relatively rare, known in the Marshalls from only seven specimens from Enewetak Atoll. They were found under rocks on lagoon pinnacles at depths of 9 to 12m, and on pier pilings at about 5m. Our specimens ranged in length from about 6 to 11mm. They resemble facelinid sp. 625 from the Marshalls, but seem different enough to warrant keeping separate for now. This could be the animal in Gosliner et al, 2008, as facelinid sp. 2.
