A never before observed nudibranch in New Zealand as far as we are aware first observed by Richard Borland @apteryx54 who took us to observe them a few days later.
Has striking resemblance to Muricata and Proxima but a fellow diver got photos of this species spawning and the egg coil is different to the pictures we have seen of Muricata and proxima egg coils. (See last photo uploaded, photo by original observer Richard Borland)
Awaiting on comments via email from Dr Richard Willan.

Phenacovolva wakayamaensis has had a name change, It is now called Kurodavolva wakayamaensis
see:
http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=431185

I see that Phenacovolva wakayamaensis is listed in Nature Watch but with no details so thought I would report the spindle cowries (Phenacovolva wakayamaensis) that I collected off a deep reef (35m) just out side Tutukaka entrance in the 1980’s. They are very hard to spot underwater as the shell is covered by a white mantle that is covered with pink dots, the same colour as the pink slender branches of the Primnoeides gorgonian on which they feed. They are also found at the Poor Knights Islands and I have heard of them been found on deep reefs off Cape Karikari.
Their type locality is Balicasag Is. in the Philippines,
