From: Mary Jane Adams

Hi Bill,
This look to me like the Forum images of Phyllodesmium poindimiei. If so, it is apparently a range extension. Length: 20 mm, Depth: about 15 meters.

Divesite: Nudi Falls, Lembeh Staits, Sulawesi, Indonesia, August 11, 2001.
Best regards,
Mary Jane

Dear Mary Jane,
With your find and Bob Bolland's photo from Okinawa, this species is now getting a much more sensible distribution.
