Dear Bill,
I think Halgerda dalanghita on your site and this animal are similar. They were feeding on the yellow sponge I have photographd them on.

I hope you can recognize that there are two animals in the lower left image.

Date: 3 March, 2002
Location: Hachijo Island Japan
Depth: 6m
Length: 40mm

Best Regards,
Nishina Masayoshi

Dear Nishina,
Thnaks for these photos which give us a bit more information on the species. I have included an enlargement (lower right) of the second animal in your photo so we can see it more clearly.
