Aegires sp. e593

This single animal found by Christina Sylvester is similar to Aegires pruvotfolae but is more elongate, and its brown spots are not surrounded by a lighter aureole. There are some similarities to Aegires sp. 3 in Gosliner et al (2008) although the nature of the brown spots looks a bit different. The single specimen was found under a loose rock in a Kwajalein reef quarry at a depth of about 1m.
