Help IDing what I thought was a chiton

Recommended Posts

It's the blue/turquoise thing right of center. I thought this was some type of chiton, but it looks like it may have a soft body. The brown around the edges aren't very clear, but they are clusters of bristles.

After blowing this image up to 400% I can see what looks like a hole on the top.  Maybe some type of Keyhole or Slit Limpet (family Fissurellidae)?

I was able to break off the little piece of rock it was on and it curled up like a roly poly. The dark spots appear to be a hard shell while the turquoise spots are soft.

In all my years of reefing, I've never seen anything like it. It's got a nice turquoise color though. Maybe toss it in the refugium if you have one.

Looks like a fuzzy chiton to me.
