Thanks for your email. The two lots of Haminoea weren't found on the soft coral featured in the shots. They were both found on dead branching coral which
was covered in algae. Please find attached the sketches as requested.
All the best

Thanks for the sketches. Clay Carlson & Patty Jo Hoff have just corrected my suggestion that your two animals are Haminoea cymbalum. They identify this as an unnamed, unidentified species of Haminoea. See their messages concerning Haminoea ovalis, Haminoea cymbalum (? = Haminoea simillima) and Haminoea sp. 1.
