Pleurehdera haraldi Marcus & Marcus, 1970

I saw this species relatively often in ledges and small caves while night diving at Makua and Pupukea, Oahu, and at Puako, Hawaii. They usually ranged from about 5 to 15 meters depth and the largest specimen I measured was about 40mm long. The wrinkled look to the dorsal surface is characteristic of this species. Although I only remember seeing specimens ranging in color from brown to purple in Hawaii, in the Marshall Islands they can occasionally be translucent white.
