This certainly looks like H. willeyi. For those not familiar with the Kermadec Islands, they are about 1000k NE of New Zealand and volcanically active, lying on the edge of the Kermadec Trench, where the Pacific Plate buries itself under the Australasian Plate. Their fauna is a mixture of northern New Zealand and local endemics, and Pacific tropical species.
Halgerda willeyi has been reported from the Kermadecs, (Brook, 1998) but it is good to get a photographic record
