Here's a relatively poor scan of a damaged Placida sp. (P. dendritica?) from here on Okinawa. Any idea as to what it may be? It wasn't found associated with any specific alga.
RFB # 3238-B
TL: approx. 5mm
From 12 meters
15 Apr 1994

Perhaps Kathe can say something, but in the meantime I will put it on the Polynesia - NW Pacific page for Placida dendritica look-alikes. I am not sure if I am interpreting your photo correctly but the rhinophores seem to be rolled (or folded) in your animal, which is different from the others on this page which have a simple tapering rod-like rhinophore - and would suggest another genus.
