Black with bright orange marginal band and very narrow transparent rim. ID from Newman & Cannon CD, where this same photo appears (although wrongly attributed to another photographer from Guam). Common on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia.

Keoki Stender's website has more photos from Hawai`i

Similar to Pseudobiceros cf. gloriosus and Pseudobiceros hymanae, but in both those worms the orange marginal band has a narrow black rim.
