This would appear to be Herviella albida. It is known in the Marshalls from three specimens found at Enewetak Atoll, plus at least a couple more from Kwajalein. The Enewetak specimens were on lagoon reefs under dead coral at depths ranging from 1 to 4 meters. The three specimens ranged from 6 to 9mm in length.
The individual below was found and photographed by Christina Sylvester in one of the quarries on the seaward reef flat of Kwajalein Island at a depth of about 2m.
Below is another specimen found and photographed in the Kwajalein reef quarries in about 2m of water by Marissa Brown.
