Kaloplocamus ramosus (Cantraine, 1835)

We recorded about 12 specimens of this small triophid nudibranch. All were found on night dives in small ledges and caves except for a single specimen found under a rock at Kure Atoll. The first was observed at Pupukea on 29 May 1978, while the Kure specimen was found exactly one year later on 29 May 1979. Eight of the 12 were observed at Puako, Hawaii, between 7 March and 3 May 1981.

This species was found several times apparently eating the branching bryozoan on the right side of the photo below.
