This appears to be a species of Stiliger or Ercolania, or perhaps Placida, somewhat similar to the one we are calling Ercolania sp. e714. The specimen below was found and photographed by Jay Lord at night on a Kwajalein Atoll lagoon pinnacle.
An additional specimen of what appears to be the same species was found on the lagoon side of Kwajalein in shallow water by Christina Sylvester. This one measured about 5mm.
