Halgerda dalanghita Fahey & Gosliner, 199

Similar to Halgerda paliensis, H. dalanghita is typically smaller and has sharper ridges that sometimes form points at the intersections. I'm afraid I had this species lumped together with Halgerda paliensis too long to know for sure where it was found. However, many of the H. paliensis I recorded came from night dives at Makua or Pupukea, Oahu, or Puako, Hawaii, so H. dalanghita likely came from one of these sites.
