Noumea crocea is well known from the Papua New Guinea region. I am happy to present you a record from the northern part of the Philippines.
This pretty picture was taken at Pandan Isl., Occ. Mindoro, Philippines.
Size: ca. 9-10 mm, depth: 12m, place: Coral Garden East, date: April 4th 2002.
I have been told that this species has never been seen there before.
Kind regards from Switzerland

This is a spectacular photo of the rhinophores - they look just like a moth's antennae - and serve the same function. From the records we now have on the Forum, this species seems to be quite widely spread in the tropical western Pacific.
