Stiliger ornatus Ehrenberg, 1828

These appear to be Stiliger ornatus, although there are some differences from specimens we have seen in Indonesia, particularly the more solid green anterior tentacles. This pair measuring about 5mm each was found on algae in shallow water in a Kwajalein reef quarry by Christina Sylvester.

Here is another, more orange specimen found in the same area.
