Atagema
(?) sp. #2

 
Atagema(?) sp. #2
Maximum size:  13 mm.

Identification:  This is a firm species that has a notum covered with a honeycomb-like pattern of narrow ridges. The ridges and the depressions between them are decorated with papillae in a manner similar to other Atagema spp but it lacks the elevated dorsal crest and tall rhinophore sheaths of most species in that genus. It is cream in color with brown flecks in the depressions and white tips on some of the papillae. The rhinophores are tipped with white and there are white and brown flecks on the branchia.

Natural history:  Atagema(?) sp. #2 is known from a single animal found at < 1 m (< 3 ft) at a moderately protected site.

Distribution:  Maui.

Taxonomic notes:  First recorded in Hawaii from Hekili Point, Maui by CP on June 19, 1997.
