Hafa Adai Dr.Bill,
We've checked pictures of Embletonia gracilis but, I couldn't find any with cerata like these. Do you have picture of Embletonia gracilis like this in your stocks ?

I'd like to know actual name.
Si Yu'us Ma'ase !

I am pretty sure this is Embletonia gracilis. The photos I have used on the Fact Sheet show the way the tip of the cerata is split into four very well, but often the split is not so obvious. Perhaps when they are well fed, the digestive gland swells up and the split is not so clear. I will look out some other photos to show the variation
