Yes, we have dredged up a few harpa kajiyamai from the Surprises Islands. It is situated in the north of the New Caledonian waters. We actually dredged 3 perfect Gem specimens, live taken in depths of about 250m. We also dredged a few pieces of broken and/or damaged specimens.

The first time we found them, we thought it was a local form of Godwini. But after close identification of these harpas, they were actually just kajiyamai.
