Dear Bill, Clay & Nishina,
I am afraid I cannot be of much help here. I recognize the species because it was one of the few species I was able to collect when I visited Clay and Patty-Jo, but I am pretty sure it is unnamed. I think I only got one very small specimen, so if it is more common in Japan, I would certainly like to get a few preserved specimens. I will not have the opportunity to study its anatomy until after I return to Denmark in November this year. So, please if you can find 3-5 specimens and preserve them in 4% formaldehyde and save them for me in 80% alcohol, I will be very grateful.
