Dear Bill,

Was diving in Bali and came across this individual. Looked in several books but could not seem to pin the name down.

Locality: Seraya Beach, Bali, 10 metres, Indonesia, Java Sea/Sulu Sea, 11 February 2007, Volcanic Sand and Rubble. Length: 20mm. Photographer: Eric Huang.

Dear Eric,

Thanks for this excellent photo of this puzzling species which I have tentatively identified as a species of Dendronotus. If it does belong to that genus it is very strange because all the other species are from temperate or cold water.

Best wishes,
Bill Rudman
