sacoglossan sp. e223

These small sacoglossans are found infrequently on lagoon reefs at Enewetak and Kwajalein Atolls, where they live under dead coral rocks at depths of 2 to 5 meters. Two measured specimens were 4 and 9mm in length. The shape is vaguely like a Cyerce, so we are leaving it for now in the family Caliphyllidae. This is similar to and could be the same as sacoglossan sp. e195.
