Bulbaeolidia alba (Risbec, 1928)

Although widespread in the Indo-Pacific and possibly even circumtropical, the first specimen of this species we have seen in the Marshalls was found on a lagoon reef at Kwajalein at a depth of about 8m on 7 August 2011. The specimen measured 7mm.

At least two more have been found since the first one, including this one by Christina Sylvester from shallow water in one of the Kwajalein reef quarries.
