Ercolania? sp. e737

This appears to be a species of Ercolania. They are sometimes found in bubble algae like Volonia, which is their food source. These were found in a Kwajalein reef quarry by Christina Sylvester. A better identification of the several similar species will require close examination of the specimens themselves.

The exposed specimen below may or may not be the same species.
