Tenellia minor (Rudman, 1981)

Tenellia minor is known from several specimens found at Kwajalein Atoll. They were under chunks of broken Porites, sometimes along with specimens of Tenellia lugubris. The first is a 4mm specimen on a lavender-tinged Porites.

The next two shots show the largest specimen we've seen so far, unmeasured but estimated at about 10mm. In the first photo, there are some eggs just below the nudibranch. This one was buried under a fine layer of sand that had collected on top of a large Porites colony.
