Hallaxa cf. translucens Gosliner & Johnson, 1994
|Maximum size: 6 mm.
a cream Hallaxa decorated with irregular brown spots. The rhinophores are brown.
Natural history: Hallaxa cf. translucens is known from a single 6 mm animal.
Big Island: may be known from the Philippines.
This species appears similar to the animal from the Philippines illustrated as Hallaxa translucens
in Gosliner, et. al., 2015. However, we're opting to use "cf" pending
further work. It was first recorded in Hawaii from the Big Island by the
ARMS team on Aug. 13, 2016
