Hi Bill and everyone!
Here are some photos of Aegires hapsis we found here on the Sunshine Coast. Though quite small this was an interesting find. I also believe it could be a new record for Australia.

This is a nice find. It certainly looks like the photos I have seen of A. hapsis, which until now has only been recorded from Okinawa. This certainly gives it a much wider distribution.
