Cyerce pavonina Bergh, 1888

Cyerce pavonina is uncommon in the Marshalls, with specimens so far found only at Kwajalein Atoll. Here they live under large rocks on the top of the reef front on the leeward seaward reef at depths of 5 to 10 meters. There is a record of this species on the Sea Slug Forum from Tanzania, so it is distributed widely in the Indo-West Pacific.

The large and smaller specimens below were found under a rock on Kwajalein Atoll's seaward reef at a depth of about 7m on 1 June 2009.
