I havenít seen this one either and have dived there on a number of occasions Ė interesting isnít it Gustav and Yves!
I will keep asking around,
Hi Kim - Never seen it. Looks like a juvenile, so could be an off-colored juvie of a new or known larger species. It could be a phyllidiid mimic like Pearsonothuria juveniles. Agree that looks stichopodid. Cheers - Gustav
What a spectacular animal; never seen anything like it I'm afraid
Guessing is the only thing to do for me: a stichopodid, and a new species!
This is a nocturnal animal, correct?
Very very nice animal.
