As with Aglajid sp. 1, the shape of this animal with raised crest-like posterior end of the head shield is more characteristic of aglajids than philinids.

Here is another cephalaspid species from Kerama Is. near Okinawa in Japan. I think this is a Philine species.
This animal is light brown in color and has lateral brown stripes.
It was found at 7m depth on coral rubble (I moved this to an algae so as to see details clearly). This animal is 3mm long.
Could you help me to identify this?

As with your earlier message I'm afraid I can't identify this species either. The only aglajid with transverse lines like this is Philinopsis lineolata, but the pattern is rather different and this animal doesn't appear to be a juvenile.
