Elysia mercieri (Pruvot-Fol, 1930)

We have seen at least two specimens of this species, both under dead coral at a depth of about 5m on lagoon reefs at Enewetak Atoll. Christina Sylvester has found small specimens up to about 3mm length sporadically common in Kwajalein reef quarries.

Both Enewetak specimens measured 6mm in length. Unfortunately, our image of this species from there is not very good.
