Trapania aurata Rudman, 1987

Trapania aurata is known in the Marshalls from a single 6mm specimen found by Peter Brown under a rock on a Kwajalein lagoon coralhead at a depth of about 13m. The photos by Jeremy Owens show the field of small entoprocts, showing up as dark specks on the pinkish sponge, that constitute the diet of this nudibranch.
