Dear Bill,

Attached a couple of pictures of Moridilla brockii from the Philippines; which I didn't see in the forum list for it yet. Erwin Koehler helped to ID it.

Locality: Moalboal, Cebu Island, 10-15 meters, Philippines, 2 May 2008, Reef. Length: 5 cm. Photographer: Marcel Tanke.

Best regards,

Dear Marcel,

I would agree with Erwin. Although I can't see the long inner cerata, the general shape, colour and clusters of cerata fit this species. It appears to be widespread throughout the tropical Indo-West Pacific.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
