Please help me identify this as I have never seen one in this area before. Depth: 5m and on sandy rubble. Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines.

My first thought was Stylocheilus longicauda, but I can't see any blue dots at this size. If you can zoom in and see them, then there's your I.D.
Cheers,
Marli

I think not. I enlarged and tried color correction but saw no indicative blue, not that that's conclusive.
Profile from head to back looks wrong though and no Nudipixel submits from Caribbean.

That said, I must concede, however, that Marli is far better at nudi id than I.
