Sorry for this late reply, I'm just back from Senegal where I spent 2 weeks diving. It was fabulous: I saw most species photographed by Patrice Petit de Voize some years ago, and even many other species. I have some nice surprises for you in my luggage.
To come back to your comments about Polycera from Brittany. I had a look at my photos and I can't see any bryozoan on it. All animals were photographed on red algae. I will be more attentive the next time.

I look forward to the photos from Senegal. Concerning the Polycera from Brittany. I was just alerting you to things worth looking for in future really. Sometimes bryozoan colonies - both the plant-like branching colonies and the encrusting colonies are large and very obvious, but other times the colonies are quite small and by the time the polycerids are big enough for you to notice, they have eaten most of the visible bryozoan colonies. That's probably why we often find groups of large animals in places where there are no obvious bryozoans.
