Atsushi must be getting into the Lyngbya. We find both the earlier Ventomnestia villica and this unknown species in that type of environment. We doubt if this animal or a second very similar form have been described. The shells are extremely fragile. They are easily broken with a fine jet of water from a syringe. We have not done any dissecting on this particular form, but do have the attached shell as well as data on the egg mass and
We have three gross classifications: atyid, haminoeid, otherid -- this present animal is in our 'otherid' class.
Shell, 2.5 x 1.9mm; Guam, Bile Bay, 17m; 1 July 1998. [c132_2a C.132]

Dear Clay & Patty Jo,
I am sure this is not the only 'otherid' you have. Thanks for letting us know.
