On the Forum, I can see a message of Paul Osmond about Hypselodoris nyalya [#10156]. It's funny because I saw an aggregation of this species, on the same sponge and in the same place too. But this year the specimens were less numerous, less than 10. Probably because of the small quantity of remaining sponge. Did you succeed in identifying this grey sponge ?

It's certainly nice to get confirmation on the sponge food of this species. We are making progress with sponge indenifications, and extra photos like this make the job easier. Sponge identifications from photographs can sometimes be tricky so I would rather go slowly and make sure we get it right first time. You can be sure I will popst the identifcations on the Forum when we have them sorted out.
