This species was posted on 13 October 2009 at these websites as Trinchesia diversicolor   Baba, 1975, because I thought it is a colour form,
picture #7 was posted on 26 December 2015 at these websites as Trinchesia sp. 40  Genus: von Ihering, 1879.
According Gosliner et al. (2015) and Cella et al. (2016) is this the "real" Cuthona yamasui  Hamatani, 1993.
There are 2 misidentified 'Cuthona yamasui' species, in Gosliner et al. (2015) as Cuthona sp. 13 page 345, which is on these websites
now Tenellia sp. 04  Genus: von Ihering, 1879, and Cuthona sp. 14.
Cella et al. (2016) moved it to the Genus Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866 in the Family Fionidae  J.E. Gray, 1857.
