This very small (less than 10mm) Tergipedidae Nudibranch (Cuthona sp.) is similar to a variety of other Cuthona species but is probably a new, unidentified species. This species was seen on a a couple of species on alage although it probably eats hydroids for food.

Detached Reef's in this remote area are named as they are near - but not directly attached to the Great Barrier Reef system.
