This one is about 1cm, with similar pattern on the body as the last one posted but not exactly the same. Hope this sheds some light on the ID.

Description

I think so. Plenty of variation in the degree of white blotching and striping seen here and at Waiteki / Waitangi.

Common in shallow rock pools, under rocks and in dead shells (often Cookia). Not often seen in seaweed choked pools.

Sympatric with Trachelochismus pinnulatus.
