Abstract
In December 2008, eight sacoglossan specimens of Hermaea Lovén, 1844 were collected from uniseriate red algae (cf. Wrangelia tanegana) at two sites on the west coast of Okinawa, Japan. These specimens are compared to the described Aplysiopsis wrangeliae Ichikawa, 1993 from Okinawa which we and other authors have previously suggested belongs to the genus Hermaea; we suggest that our specimens are attributable to Hermaea wrangeliae (Ichikawa, 1993).
