An unidentified species.

If this is Thorunna horologia, then it is the first record for the Pacific.

A juvenile individual.

Comment from Scott Johnson on photo #30352
I think this is probably an undescribed species of Thorunna most akin to T. florens, rather than T. australis. The banding pattern is like some forms of T. florens, as is the white patch on the anterior end, although in T. florens it is usually red or orange. The two bands of orange on the rhinophores are unlike either T. florens or T. australis.

Comment from Richard Willan on photo #8869
A very small juvenile individual that is too small to be sure what it is, or what it would grow up to be. It is unlikely to be Thorunna australis because there are no white specks on the mantle.
