Dear Dr. Rudman,
Another one I'm having difficulty with. This animal was photographed at 6 metres on Batu Merah Reef, NE Sulawesi on 21 June 01. It is approx 70mm long. We also found the same sp. on another dive several days later at another site.

Looks a bit like Halgerda stricklandi but that species has no ridges and secondary whitish nodules between the orange-tipped ones. The gills and rhinophores in that species are also lined with black rather than spotted. It also looks quite like Halgerda carlsoni but in that species there are fine orange spots in the region between the pustules. I don't think I have missed any of these orange spotted species but if I have can someone please let me know
