I came across another tiny specimen of what I'm guessing is Siphopteron flavum. The population explosion of Chelidonura amoena is as big as ever, and still holding strong. Naturally, I'd be most grateful if you could help me identify this nudibranch!

This is Siphopteron brunneomarginatum. It is similar to S. flavum but this species has a brown borders to the parapodia. It is known from Guam, Marshall Ids, and Papua New Guinea, so your find increases the known distribution of this species.
