Here's a little (3 mm) Trapania that we saw once last spring. It was trying hard to stay on that coral in a surgy current.
On one of the photos there are some spots -- could it be T. aureopunctata?

There seem to be a lot of undescribed species of Trapania still to be named. I guess its is possibly T. aureopunctata but I suspect that is a southern temperate species since we only know it so far from the southern parts of Australia. I will call it Trapania sp. 13.
