Limenandra confusa Carmona, Pola, Gosliner & Cervera, 2013

So far we have several specimens from Kwajalein and one from Enewetak Atolls. The first shot below is the second Kwajalein animal, found exposed on an algae-covered reef on the atoll's western seaward reef at a depth of about 8m. It was recorded on 3 September 2007.

The specimen immediately below was crawling across an algae-covered rock on a Kwajalein Atoll lagoon reef at a depth of about 6m on 13 July 2009.

The two photos below show a very colorful specimen from Kwajalein Atoll's seaward reef on 10 March 2013.

This one was on Halimeda algae on the slope of the eastern lagoon reef on 25 January 2016.

This is an unfortunately rather poor picture of the single specimen found at Enewetak Atoll. It measured 8mm long and was at a depth of 3 meters on a piling on Medren Pier on 28 March 1983.

We have also seen this species in Hawaii.
