This Flabellina was found on the seaward reef slope on the western end of Kwajalein Island by Stan Jazwinski. It has some resemblance to Flabellina rubrolineata, which here at Kwajalein is also known exclusively from that same location. It appears to be what Gosliner et al (2015) call Flabellina sp. 2 from Malaysia and the Philippines, so the Marshalls represent another long range extension. Photo by Jay Lord.
