Dear Bill,
Back home from the Philippines and again fascinated by the tiny creatures you can find there, I'm happy to send you a record of Noumea flava from the northern Philippine region (Occ. Mindoro).

This picture was taken at Pandan Island. Size: ca. 6-7mm, depth: 10m, place: Canyons, date: April 24th, 2003.

Kind regards from Switzerland,

Thanks Fredy,
It's only a short time ago that we thought this was a western Indian Ocean species, so it's good to have another Pacific record.
Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
