Goniodoridella savignyi Pruvot-Fol, 1933

Again, the equipment available to shoot these tiny animals out in the middle of the Pacific in 1981 makes for some rather fuzzy pictures. But these animals are certainly Goniodoridella savignyi and are known in the Marshalls from two specimens found at Enewetak Atoll. Both were on lagoon reefs under dead coral at a depth of about 3 meters, and the two, found at different times, measured 3 and 4mm long.

One more 3mm individual was found exposed on algae on a Kwajalein lagoon pinnacle at night on 27 September 2014.
