Eubranchus
sp. #4
 
Eubranchus sp. #4
Maximum size:  4 mm.

Identification:  This species has a translucent-white body sprinkled with orange-brown  flecks. The long, slightly lumpy cerata have white acid glands at their tips and the cream digestive gland is visible within them. The rhinophores and cephalic tentacles are smooth and white with subapical translucent-orange bands. It can be distinguished from Eubranchus sp. #7 by its lack of white patches and white, as opposed to translucent-orange, rhinophores.

Natural history:  The single known animal was found in Halimeda kanaloana at 27 m (90 ft).

Distribution:  Maui.

Taxonomic notes:  It was first recorded in Hawaii from Makena, Maui by PF on June 7, 1995.
