Hermaea? sp. e613

This small animal appears to be a species of Hermaea. It is known in the Marshalls from only one specimen found crawling on Lyngbya blue-green algae on a shallow lagoon reef on 9 August 2010. It measured only 7mm stretched out, and the only photo we have is this fuzzy one from the digital microscope.
