This is an undescribed species of the genus Atagema. I call it Atagema sp. 01, to distinguish it from other species of Atagema.
It is uniformly white with ridges between the round depressions that resemble sponge oscula.
This species is as Atagema sp. 2 in IPN at page 185, it was posted on 16 May 2004 at these websites as
Atagema sp. A  Genus: Gray, 1850, and changed on 11 September 2011 into Atagema sp. 01  Genus: M.E. Gray, 1850.
For some genera was the alphabet almost through. I had to change the distinguishing alphabetic character into a number. I had chosen 2-digit numbers, even though '01' looks a little bit stupid, and now is only the genus italic written.
