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 Trinchesia sp. 41  Genus: von Ihering, 1879, and Cuthona sp. 14.
Cella et al. (2016) moved it into the genus Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866 in the family Fionidae  J.E. Gray, 1857.
Korshunova et al. (2017) restricted the genus Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866 to this 3 species:
-Tenellia adspersa (Nordmann, 1845)
-Tenellia chaetopterana Ekimova, Deart & Schepetov, 2017 and
-Tenellia fuscata (Gould, 1870)
and reinstated the family Trinchesiidae  F. Nordsieck, 1972 with the genera
-Catriona  Winckworth, 1941
-Diaphoreolis  Iredale & O'Donoghue, 1923
-Phestilla  Bergh, 1874
-Rubramoena  Cella, Carmona, Ekimova, Chichvarkhin, Schepetov & Gosliner, 2016
-Tenellia  A. Costa, 1866
-Trinchesia  von Ihering, 1879 and
-Zelentia  Korshunova, Martynov & Picton, 2017
and moved T. yamasui (Hamatani, 1993) again into the genus Trinchesia  von Ihering, 1879.
I changed it again on 18 October 2017 into Trinchesia yamasui (Hamatani, 1993) [Cuthona].
