I label it Haminoeidae sp. 02 to distinguish it from other species of the family.
It is chracterized by a dark brown/black colour with lighter flower-like onaments (rosettes), and whitish spots on the black long 'tail'. This picture does not show enough details for an identification, I posted it on 5 March 2012 as Bulla sp. 01 Genus: Linnaeus, 1758. I followed even with the genus Dr. Alicia Hermosillo, by now I think, I can se a long white spotted 'tail', it is most likely a pale variation of the 'miniham' sp. #2, I changed it on 23 June 2016 into Haminoeidae sp. 02 Family: Pilsbry, 1895.
Species of the family Haminoeidae are herbivorous cephalaspideans.
There are many pictures of this new genus at the internet:
- from Guam at guamreeflife.com, a specimen
- from Guam was the 'Nudibranch of the Week # 109" at Michael D. Miller's The Slug Site, and several species
- from Hawaii at Sea Slugs of Hawaii,
- from Japan at Medslugs, and a specimen
- from Bali, Indonesia was the 'Nudibranch of the Week # 706" at Michael D. Miller's The Slug Site,
and from several locations wrong placed in the genus Haminoea at Nudi Pixel.
