Hi Karen -- What fun! How nice to get a big batch of images rather than one every couple of days.

This guy is Exoclimenella maldivensis. The color pattern is very distinctive.

Thank you so much. You are terrific. I have asked so many others, and no one had a guess, even though, as you note, its markings are distinctive.
